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: one island, one community, one government – and one exciting future. Now we need talented leaders to join us for a career-defining opportunity: to make change happen on a unique, historic island.

Consistent policy formation will be vital across all areas of government. To make sure it happens, you’ll build on a newly created policy centre of excellence. As the leader of this hub and specialists across Team Jersey, you’ll bring a structured approach to policy making and management.

What we want to achieve is ambitious – but also complicated. It means understanding how public policies interact and can be developed to deliver further benefits. This will be your remit as Group Director of Policy; a role where you’ll draw on a breadth of knowledge across a range of policy areas. As well as providing expert advice, you’ll help us achieve strategic outcomes through effective and agile policy-making. It’s all about using resources flexibly and prioritising key initiatives to address the most important areas.

Clearly, your capacity for developing policy is hugely important, so you’ll need proven experience and ability in this area, and a good grasp of financial and performance information. You should also be adept at developing strong strategic thinking across the public service and connecting with diverse stakeholders. Able to hold sway with a range of influential people, you’ll also be perfectly at home in a political environment. Meanwhile, you’ll also be used to managing and inspiring teams to achieve. With an understanding of the importance of strong corporate policy and good governance, you’ll play your part in a momentous move that will benefit a community of over 100,000 people.

Perhaps you have a high-profile background in government. Or you hold an outstanding track record in public sector transformation, we want to hear from you

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.
