We’re building 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 a proven leader you will become a trusted partner and instil confidence in the ability of the finance team to deliver exceptional outcomes and benefits for the Government of Jersey. Your behaviours and approach will be critical in managing the successful teams in Finance Business Partnering.

As Head of Finance Business Partnering you will lead the creation, development and implementation of a new strategic and leadership capability who will act as “ambassadors” for finance across all departments of the Government of Jersey.  You will oversee a newly formed customer – focused team of finance business partners, developing strategic alliances with other teams and functions to put Finance at the heart of decision-making.  You must be a strong and effective communicator with substantial post qualification experience and proven experience of leading teams through change. Experience in either the health sector, managing major projects or corporate services would be an advantage but is not essential.

You will be part of a developing team that values its staff, is focusing on career enhancing training and development programmes and offers the opportunity to participate in and lead on professionally demanding and leading edge financial performance – including long term financial planning, budget management,  programme financial management, new systems implementation and world class accounting and reporting. 

These initiatives are happening at pace and to the highest quality standards and these roles offer an opportunity to be part of and play a major role in leading this work

You’ll bring the boundless talent and drive that we’re looking for to help lead the biggest transformation in government for a generation and build one of the critical functions at the heart of delivering our ambition. Join Team Jersey and find your unique place in the world.
