We calculate the next-to-leading corrections to the jet vertex which is relevant for the Mueller-Navelet-jets production in p͞p collisions and for the forward jet cross section in ep collisions. In this first part we present the results of the vertex for an incoming quark. Particular emphasis is given to the separation of the collinear divergent part and the central region of the produced gluon.
