Government of Jersey
Remuneration: £13,000 for 20 days per annum
Location: St Helier, Jersey
We’re seeking to establish the first-ever unitary board for the Government of Jersey’s health and community services department, which delivers care and treatment to our island community.
Key services include medical and surgical service, adults social care, mental health, prevention and therapies, women and children’s service and community dental services. We employ around 2,400 full time equivalent staff with an annual expenditure in the region of £230 million. We commission services from both on-island and UK based providers, and work in partnership with a range of community based providers.
We’re looking to appoint up to five non-executive directors who will work alongside the Chair and executive directors, providing visible leadership and driving improvements across all our services. They will be skilled in building collaborative relationships with peers, partners and service users, committed to openness and clarity of purpose and will bring to the Board the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to ensure delivery of safe, compassionate, effective care.
They will work on behalf of the people of Jersey.
The successful candidates will have proven experience of successfully operating and achieving change at board level in Jersey, the UK or overseas (mostly usually in a health and care provider organisation). They will be leaders in their fields. Their backgrounds will include a combination of medical, nursing, social services and strategic finance.
Other backgrounds and skills sets are also desirable:
- CEO of health and / or social care provider
- human resources and organisational development in a health care provider
- digital transformation / digital health service provision
The non-executive directors will be founding members of the Board; a demanding but exciting role that provides an opportunity to be the forefront of real change, helping prepare the Department for its first ever inspection by Jersey’s independent care regulator (the Jersey Care Commission), developing and embedding a robust governance framework, and shaping a positive, inclusive culture in which staff are empowered to their best work and in which Islanders will feel safe, heard and engaged. The Board is being established in a non-statutory form in the first instance, pending adoption of the legislation necessary to establish the law.
A unique opportunity to shape a whole Island’s future health and care provision.
