I need to run a job in Sql server 2012. The service provider has added Sql Server Agent but I cannot see it in my Sql server management studio express 2012. What can I do to access it?

Its not possible to run sql jobs via the Studio Management Studio. Instead you can create jobs using a bit of Notepad, the SqlCmd.exe and the Task Scheduler.
Open notepad and save the sql statements in a .sql file on the server somewhere e.g. d:\MSSQL\Jobs.
Create a new Scheduled Task and run the sql file as a given user e.g.

Sqlcmd.exe -I script.sql -U username -P password

There are some third party Agents but you have to check the documentation that came with them.
