Jackson's innovative Strategic Support Program (SSP) provides staffing support for business needs across the organization through opportunities created specifically for those who may want or need more flexible work schedules. The program is designed to develop a highly productive, engaged, and motivated group of associates that will learn our products, systems, processes, and core values, while also operating on a work schedule that best fits their needs. Does this sound like you?
Jackson's Strategic Support Program (SSP) enables associates to gain work experience, professional development, and skills training while creating their own flexible, part-time work schedules. Strategic Support Associates (SSA) play an important role in maintaining the operational and technical functions and projects within various Jackson departments. Through our training and development programs, SSAs receive paid orientation and hands-on training time to learn multiple skills and business systems.
The Jackson Development Zone (or "The Zone" for short) is one of our most exciting SSP initiatives, and has become THE place to work as a college student in the Lansing area. Associates at The Zone gain corporate experience and exposure with a dynamic and growing financial services organization, all while enjoying flexible, part-time work with self-designated schedules. More than 250 college students work at this fast-paced, innovative office, located on Grand River Avenue in East Lansing, across the street from Michigan State University's campus.
You don't have to be a college student to work as a Strategic Support Associate, as the program is open to anyone who may be interested in a more flexible part-time work schedule. We maintain SSA positions in three different Jackson office locations: Lansing, Nashville, and East Lansing.
