Assalammu alay kum
I live in Dhule Maharashtra but for the job purpose I shifted to surat Gujarat state where I am working in Gemological institute of America I am unable to offer juma namaz due to time shortage but I offer zohar instead of juma in lunch time  that is 12:30 to 1:00 I told them about giving more time for juma namaz but they say to affer namaz at lunch time only and are not ready to understand so is it valid to offer zohar instead of juma every friday

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

It is permissible for you to pray Zuhr instead of Friday prayer in such a compulsion, but missing the regular Friday prayer is a matter of great concern and deprivation, so either try to get permission for Friday prayer or take your monthly leave on Friday so that you may get at least one or two Fridays in a month, and if all attempts to offer Friday prayer fail, do continue to look for another job, and hold on to the current job until another suitable job is found.

And Allah knows best
