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.
Modernising public services for 100,000 islanders and transforming how we run a 7,000-strong organisation needs a strong, compelling narrative and effective channels for communicating it. Which is why we’ve put together a new Communications directorate to inform our audiences and help them to engage with what’s changing.
As the Director of Communications, you’ll work with colleagues, politicians and stakeholders to shape, develop and implement our communications strategy. You’ll use audience insights and the latest disciplines to drive innovative, multi-channel and objectives-based campaigns. You’ll also provide expert advice, offer robust challenge when necessary and bring our audiences’ voices into our decision-making. And you’ll promote and defend both the national and international reputations of the Government and our island.
As your CV shows, you’re a superior communicator, able to inspire others and lead them towards a common goal. You’re used to producing and overseeing high-quality content, whether powerful narratives or speeches by Ministers and senior leaders, media announcements or corporate reports, social media campaigns or full-blown marketing campaigns.
You’ve been involved in organisational change before, in government or in other customer-facing organisations. You’ve ensured that both staff and customers understand what’s changing and why, and that they are able to engage with and respond to those changes. You’re a strategic thinker, credible and perfectly at home in a political environment, with an understanding and experience of policy and politics. As a leader, you’re used to managing performance and motivating teams to achieve and to operating confidently at executive leadership level.
Perhaps you have a high-profile background in marketing, design, digital, government or corporate communications. Or you hold an outstanding track record in public engagement in support of public sector transformation.
Bring the boundless talent we’re looking for and help to lead the biggest transformation in government for a generation, in one of the world’s most beautiful places. Join Team Jersey and find your unique place in building our future.
