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.

As Group Director of Performance, Accounting and Reporting, you’ll be a key leader of the States Treasury and Exchequer function, pioneering change, championing the transformation agenda and re-working the way the finance function currently uses data and financial information to make the right strategic service decisions. This means having overall accountability for transforming the way performance, accounting and reporting is currently delivered, creating best practice across the States and partners to help deliver long term financial stability.

You will create the conditions for innovation and change so your team are continually reviewing, adapting and using learning and best practice to improve the support they provide to politicians and senior leaders. This will help place finance at the heart of decision making and support a vibrant and growing economy across the States of Jersey, delivering positive outcomes for islanders.

It will take an exceptional finance professional, with good strategic and operational experience to succeed in this unique role. Having started your career as a qualified Accountant, you will have since gained experience of preparing, managing and monitoring significant revenue and capital budgets in a large and complex organisation, operating in a politically sensitive environment. Your leadership, change management and influencing skills will be key to creating productive relationships with a myriad of partners and stakeholders.

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.
