Group Director of Strategic Finance

States of Jersey

We’re continuing to build a new future for Jersey that is more modern, sustainable and prosperous for all. It’s a future that will see people, business and government come together to collaborate in a way they’ve never done before. This approach is called Team Jersey and it’s a milestone in our history: one island, one community, one government – and one exciting future. We need talented leaders to join us for a career-defining opportunity: to make change happen on a unique, historic island.

As transformation will take shape at multiple levels, we require a leader to drive strategic financial planning and policy to transform the approaches to finance across the States of Jersey.  You’ll help us create the framework for a ‘One Government’ approach to strategic finance, crafting a Medium Term Government Plan which encourages a culture of innovation and productivity and links spend across services and departments to Island outcomes and the States’ strategic priorities. You will also drive opportunities for improved, collaborative services that will deliver better outcomes and services for islanders, businesses and visitors. With your expertise, we can bring a greater focus to the long term financial sustainability of the States, deliver a robust plan for the future, ensuring there is a coherent, innovative, integrated and deliverable strategy for making investments. At the top of your agenda, you will help put finance at the heart of decision-making and drive continuous improvement and inspire teams to deliver high financial standards across the States Treasury, Exchequer function and broader Government departments.

You will be experienced at establishing new services, creating a high performance culture, and setting up and maintaining complex financial management, resource planning systems, modelling and cost analysis. As an experienced professional who has led strategic, organisational change, you’ll be adept at managing relationships with internal leaders, senior stakeholders and external regulators. Experience in a public sector environment would be desirable.  The Group Director of Strategic Finance will create the climate to enable staff to thrive, ensuring finance supports the delivery of the vision of a vibrant and growing economy across the States of Jersey, delivering positive outcomes for islanders.

Bring the boundless talent we’re looking for and you can help lead the biggest transformation in government for a generation. Join Team Jersey and find your unique place in the world.
