Talent & Education

Jacksonville is the place where talent thrives. Our diverse workforce is aligned to fit your current and future needs from existing talent to a pipeline from our top school districts and colleges and universities.

The Jacksonville region is the 5th fastest-growing market in America and a top city for millennials.

One of the key advantages of the Jacksonville region is our workforce.  We know that we can only be as strong as the talent we have for employers and our educational system demonstrates how we are developing the skilled workers companies need to grow and succeed.

The Jacksonville region is home to three of the top 10 school districts in Florida, including the #1 school district in the state – St. Johns County with Clay and Nassau not far behind. This level of excellence ensures that we are creating a great foundation for the workforce of tomorrow.

Our colleges and universities – University of North Florida, Jacksonville University, Florida State College at Jacksonville, St. Johns River State College, Edward Waters College and Flagler College – are building curriculums that match job demand in the region.  Specific tracks for logistics, nursing, aviation and technology are giving top employers and fast-growing companies access to homegrown talent already in the market.

With talent top of mind for companies and business leaders, the Jacksonville region provides the workforce that will serve current and future job needs and create a vibrant economy for the long term.
 

“At Johnson & Johnson we want to make sure we’re building diverse teams, and the talent pool in Jacksonville provides that.”
