If I have the job virus that had caused cervical cancer, not warts, can my husband still  be at risk for genital warts?

In brief: Yes

Assuming "job" is a mispelling for "same" or "hpv".
The virus that causes genital warts does overlap with the virus that causes cervical cancer. There are different strains of the same virus and the strains most likely to cause cervical cancer tend not to produce as many warts and the strains that cause visible warts in men are a bit less likely to cause cervical cancer.

In brief: Genital warts

Hpv is a virus that causes either genital warts or cervical cancer.
There are over 100 types of these viruses and a few of them are known to increase your risk for cervical cancer. This is usually transmitted through intimate contact. Depending on your husband's immune status, he may be at risk, if not already a carrier for the virus. It usually infects without symptoms til the condition is worse.
