Something extraordinary is happening in Jersey. We’re creating a new future for our historic island. We’re building a modern, agile, digital, customer-focused public service for our community of 100,000 islanders. It’s all part of our bold new approach called Team Jersey: one island, one community, one government, one future. For an exceptional leader like you, this is a career-defining opportunity to join a unique organisation at a time of unprecedented change. It’s your chance to make history on an historic island.

As Director General for Justice & Home Affairs, you’ll work for a safe, just and fairer society. It’s not just about providing first-class statutory services. It’s about leading new models of service provision that draw on innovative thinking.

Through you, we’ll put a long-term strategy for integrated public protection and law enforcement services into action. It will cover criminal justice and offender management, and of course, meet the needs of communities and businesses. To secure public confidence in policing and the criminal justice system, you’ll ensure that every element – from the Youth Offending Services and Independent Prison Monitoring Board, to the Prison – is performing and making the most of its resources. 

To deliver transformation and safe, resilient services, you’ll work as part of Team Jersey on all strategic matters. That means you need to be a highly credible figure with the confidence and ability to build strategic relationships. Able to hold sway with a range of influential people, you’ll be perfectly at home in a political environment. Meanwhile, you’ll also be used to managing performance and inspiring teams to achieve. With an understanding of policy and governance in your area, you’ll be equipped to help us meet changing public expectations.

Whatever your background you’ll bring the boundless talent we’re looking for to help lead the biggest transformation in government for a generation.
