More jobs seem to be opening up in our area

Jobs available in and around South County in non-profits and businesses
By Will Collette

The official Charlestown unemployment number holds at 6.1% which is close to the statewide average. We’re still waiting to see the new stats for January and hoping they will show some real job growth. But for now, the numbers show almost 300 Charlestown workers actively looking for work out of a total active workforce of 4,519.

I’ve noted before that these statistics belie the Charlestown Citizens Alliance’s image of Charlestown as a community of retirees at leisure. Maybe down in Quonnie where they live, but not in the rest of Charlestown.

Anyway, rather than point out once against that there are practical steps Charlestown can take to help residents find and hold onto work, let’s look at what’s available.

These listings come from the Swearer Center at Brown University for most of the non-profit listings (click here to sign up for their daily e-mail of current openings) and from the various local Patch websites in our area (South Kingstown-Narragansett, North Kingstown, Stonington, New London). Some listings may be out of date or the jobs are filled (that’s always a possibility with any job posting), but here they are:

South County Habitat for Humanity in Charlestown seeks a part-time Development & Marketing Support Coordinator and an Administrative Support Coordinator. Click here and click here for more details.
