Government of Jersey
As Director General, you’ll focus on ensuring the continued success of Jersey’s development in a rapidly changing external environment and leading on the department’s vision to prioritise people, places, and the safeguarding of the future of the Island’s infrastructure.
You’ll oversee the strategic development of Jersey’s capital programmes and will be operationally responsible for a range of key services. This role has oversight for the long-term strategy for infrastructure across the island and for ensuring inclusive growth. In addition, the role includes a strong emphasis on joint working with the education system to ensure that the capability of young people is aligned with predicted areas of skills in infrastructure, building, planning and engineering and utilities.
With responsibility for the natural environment, you’ll be required to work with communities and businesses to find the right balance between maintaining our environmental resources and protecting the sustainability of the Island along with supporting the natural and marine environment. In additional, you’ll oversee both operational sport and the broader regulation and enforcement of key environmental protection legislation.
You’ll need demonstrable experience of working in a senior role in a highly sensitive political environment and evidence of the ability to challenge and negotiate with a wide range of stakeholders to enable the delivery of actions and results that support the strategic direction required by the Chief Executive, and Council of Ministers.
You’ll be part of an organisation-wide leadership team and part of the OneGov ethos, ensuring governmental services work together for the benefit of Islanders, including owning our commitment to ‘put children first’.
