Chief Executive Officer

In 2020, the Authority returned to operating independently, and is now looking to appoint a permanent CEO to provide strong leadership to the Authority and its employees. The CEO will report to the Chair and deal with subject matter which is varied, technically complex, highly sensitive and material to the economic success of Jersey.  The Authority also has a role in representing the Authority overseas.

The role of the reconstituted Authority is a dynamic and evolving one and often includes a mixture of contentious and non-contentious work.  The CEO will need good judgment and the ability to adapt their style when dealing with a diverse range of issues and stakeholders. The CEO will join the Board as its executive Member and make recommendations to the Board, as well as lead a high calibre team.

The successful candidate will have excellent C- level leadership skills and board level experience.  They will be able to demonstrate their knowledge and experience of Jersey and their understanding of the island’s structures, political framework and culture.

The CEO is the public face of the Authority and as such, the successful candidate will have excellent communication and public speaking skills and established relationships with a wide range of local stakeholder groups.

All applicants must be entitled to work in Jersey and the successful candidate will be required to live in Jersey.  The JCRA welcomes applications from qualified candidates regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.
