Looking for Employment? We Can Help!
We offer two programs through our Job Development Center:
Senior Tax Work-Off Program (contact Susan Gannon @ 978-777-4067): If you are 60+ and live in Middleton in a home in which you are listed on the deed, then you may qualify to earn up to $1000, per calendar year, in real estate tax credits. The work you do will be for the benefit of the residents of Middleton. We have a wide range of job opportunities in various municipal departments. We have an application for you to submit, along with a policy statement. All applications are processed through the Middleton Council on Aging.
Two people who are listed on the same deed may “job-share”, if qualified, to earn the maximum of $1,000 per household, per calendar year. There is still plenty of time for anyone to earn all or part of this credit before the deadline of 12/31/11. Credit will be applied to the tax bill due in February of 2012. You may be reconsidered for work starting again 1/1/2012 for all, or a portion of that calendar year.
There have been times when these jobs, and/or other volunteer jobs, have resulted in part-time employment by the Town of Middleton, although there is no guarantee of same.
Private/Public Sector Jobs Program (contact Bill Walczak @ 978-777-4067): In these tough economic times, it is especially gratifying that we have been able to place numerous people in jobs in local government and businesses, both in-town and in the general area. We work with a highly trained job developer to place Middleton residents, 55+, according to their abilities.
Putting Mature Middleton residents to work is our goal. Our reputation is such that local employers are coming to us with job listings. It is a documented fact that the majority of mature workers are noted for their experience, reliability and professionalism.
If you are a local business owner, we would be very interested in working with you as well.
Please give us a call….ask for Bill Walczak @ 978-777-4067.
