The Jersey Care Commission regulates and inspects services for both adults and children, provided by the Government of Jersey, Parishes, private providers and the voluntary sector, to ensure that people receive high quality and safe care. Our vision is to provide independent assurance, promote best practice and improve health and social care outcomes for the people of Jersey. The scope of the Commission’s regulatory reach is expected to expand considerably, to include regulation of acute health care, social services and primary care, and services for children and young people.
The Commission's approach to inspection includes getting to the heart of things that matter to people, through broad engagement with care providers (many of whom are being regulated for the first time) and with a range of organisations, to ensure that we deliver a safe and effective regulatory system which will protect vulnerable people.
This is a new senior leadership role and the Chief Inspector will bring the strategic leadership, operational expertise and technical skills to deliver the Commission’s statutory, regulatory and inspection functions. You will lead a team of inspectors, setting high standards, promoting excellence in the regulation of health and social care, and challenging poor performance. With a high level of autonomy and a growing remit, the Chief Inspector will be an effective ambassador for the Commission, identifying risks to public safety and ensuring that quality is continually improved.
We are seeking an outstanding leader, a registered health or social care professional, preferably with experience of both delivering high quality services and of working in a regulated or regulatory environment. You will need to be a good communicator, politically astute, bringing demonstrable experience as a senior leader, with a track record in strategic management, service planning and delivery. You will be motivated by our core purpose to promote service excellence. You will be an ambassador for the Commission, engaging with staff and stakeholders at every level, demonstrating a transparent and independent approach to regulation, interpreting complex information and advising the Chair and Commissioners on matters of strategic importance.
If you share our five core values of a Person- centred approach, Integrity, Openness and Accountability, Efficiency and Excellence and Engagement, this role presents a unique opportunity for you to influence quality improvement and the development of safe, effective and high-quality care, now and for the future.
