Director Strategy and Innovation
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. Now we need talented leaders to join us for a career-defining opportunity: to make change happen on a unique, historic island.
As Director of Strategy and Innovation, you’ll be shaping the next 20 years in Jersey by bringing different statutory and island strategies together in a single, unified Island Plan.
This vision will set out our ambitions for every aspect of our future, ensuring that the government follows a coherent, overarching design.
You’ll be uniquely placed to give the Chief Executive, Chief Minister and Council of Ministers forward-looking advice and support our broader transformation too.
The future is all about consolidation and teamwork, so you’ll be contributing to the delivery of key policy strategies in areas across the organisation.
Your capacity for strategic thinking is essential. You’ll need proven abilities and experience in this area, plus a good grasp of financial and performance information.
You should also be adept at developing policy and connecting with diverse stakeholders. Able to hold sway with a range of influential people, you’ll 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 policy and governance in your area, you’ll play your part in a momentous move that will benefit a community of 100,000 people.
Perhaps you have a high-profile background in business or government.
Or you hold an outstanding track record of utilising strategic policy planning to ensure 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.
