Director of Property and Special Projects

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.

To make sure we successfully transform, you’ll support the Director General Growth, Housing and Environment by creating an efficient and effective capital building programme.  This will see you deliver all of our capital projects on time and on budget. You’ll also realise our strategic outcomes by working with a range of internal and external stakeholders. And by leading a broad, multi-disciplinary team, you’ll ensure we get the best possible long-term outcomes for the island and our residents. In fact, you’ll represent States of Jersey in all capital projects, and become an essential part of Team Jersey and our future.

Delivering transformation like this takes a proactive, credible and authoritative voice. So you’re able to hold sway with a range of influential people, and you feel at home in a political environment. With significant experience in a similar senior role, you’ll know all about the challenges we face. You’re also used to managing performance and inspiring teams to achieve outstanding results – all within agreed budgets, targets and strategic objectives. An understanding of policy and governance in your area is vital, as 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 property, surveying, asset management gained in either the public or private sectors. Or you hold an outstanding track record in bringing large scale project management and commercial acumen to public sector transformation.

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.
