About Government of Jersey

The Government of Jersey is a billion-pound organisation and the largest employer on the island. Its 6,700 public servants are responsible for the cradle-to-grave health, education, social care and social security of Jersey’s 100,000 islanders. This government is led by the Chief Minister and Council of Ministers, and is subject to oversight by the 49-member States Assembly – Jersey’s legislature – and a number of scrutiny panels.

The government develops and maintains the island’s infrastructure – from housing and roads, to water and sewage, public spaces to cultural venues. It also supports the island’s local and international economy through effective regulation and fiscal policy, overseas promotion and inward investment, business support and innovation.

In addition, the government collects the taxes that pay for public services, and pay the income support and pensions that help families and the elderly. The government keeps islanders safe from harm – policing Jersey’s streets, running its prisons, fire and ambulance services. It also protects the natural environment and biodiversity, supporting the island’s agriculture, fishing and tourism sectors.
