Established in 1974, the SJB maintains a registry of more than 500 job seekers, representing a broad range of skills, talents, and abilities, blue and white collar. SJB provides the client employer contact information for its registrants who may be qualified for the position. The employer evaluates the candidates and negotiates duties, hours, compensation, etc., with them.

The SJB’s service is free; there is no charge to jobseekers or employers for using it. While jobseekers are at least 50 years old, those who employ them may be of any age.

Many jobs are part-time, temporary or single projects, but others are longer term or result in repeat engagements. Commercial and professional firms commonly have openings for office administrators, bookkeepers and receptionists. Residential clients often use SJB to locate gardeners, companions, pet sitters and tradespeople to handle repair and maintenance projects.
