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 a historic island.

As our new Chief of Staff to the Chief Executive Officer, you’ll play a critical role in championing the work of the CEO. You’ll enable him to work effectively with internal and external stakeholders, as well as helping him to fulfil his commitments to Ministers, States Members, residents, businesses, partners, the third sector, and staff.

As you’d imagine, this is a strategic, facilitative and active behind-the-scenes role. It’s one that will see you driving change and encouraging innovation and transformation across the States of Jersey. Crucially, it will be your job to put ideas into action, and deliver the very best services for the community.

We’re looking for someone who is adept at handling complexity – from relationships, to partnerships and strategies across multiple delivery partners. You will also have a breadth of understanding of the practical implications around enabling the delivery of strategies across the whole range of public services. You’ll also bring a sound grasp of metrics and measures of effectiveness. And you’ll be relentlessly focused on innovation and change.

Perhaps you have a high-profile background in business. Or you hold an outstanding track record in public sector transformation.

Either way, you’ll bring the boundless talent we’re looking for to help lead the biggest transformation in government for a generation.

Join Team Jersey and find your unique place in the world.
