Government of Jersey


A move to Jersey means a real change, both for you personally and professionally. 

Because life in Jersey is different. An Island of only 45 square miles, travelling to work can be a 10 minute walk and sea swimming a daily activity.  This feeling of closeness extends into how we work. We are 1 team, 1 service and in 1 location.

And we work hard to help families to stay together with increasing investment in community and intensive support.  We have the time to deliver interventions and are creating time for direct work and as a team we really care about our children, young people and families.

Jersey – what’s it all about

The Island has magnificent scenery including golden beaches but professionally it is a mixed picture.  The Jersey Care Inquiry told us we must do better for our children and we are turning that ship and building excellent practice through a highly skilled and resilient team.

What we give, what we need

We have investment and we are well resourced.  2022 saw over 200 hours of professional development and we work hard to keep case loads manageable so our team can enjoy all the wonderful things the Island has to offer.  A close team, to thrive in our unique environment you will be courageous and ethical, proud of your practice and be excited by the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead of us.

And the move to our Island can work around you.  If the stability of a permanent contract is what you need we can do that.  But we can also do a fixed term contract giving you the time to find out whether Jersey life is for you.
