Full time

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 our Chief Operating Officer, you’ll be enabling and underpinning the delivery of a very different public service model for the States of Jersey. And you’ll achieve this through an ambitious modernisation agenda, as well as an unswerving commitment to using digital technologies to improve service provision efficiency and effectiveness.

Of course, this work starts internally, where you’ll play a leading role in developing and modernising the critical infrastructure on which government depends – from digital platforms and systems to HR, programme management to data security, and procurement to supplier management.

You’ll also be responsible for embedding cultural change, transformation and equality, diversity and wellbeing throughout our organisation. At all times, you’ll encourage innovation and transformation. And a crucial part of your role will be inspiring Team Jersey to deliver the best services for the community.

As you’d expect, we’re looking for someone who has already developed a deep understanding of need across the public service. You’ll bring advanced knowledge of commercial negotiations, contract management and procurement that will allow you to confidently lead on the creation and maintenance of markets. You’ll also have what it takes to deliver sound commercial digital solutions. And you’ll be fully accountable for the transformation, implementation and ongoing operations of a robust digital infrastructure.

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.
