Welcome from Charlie Parker, Chief Executive of the States of Jersey and Head of the Public Service

This is an exciting and challenging time in our island’s history and for the States of Jersey.

At a time of economic threats and uncertainty – such as Brexit, global financial risks and declining productivity – we’re embarking upon a rapid and unprecedented programme of transformation, bringing together ten separate departments under a new, unified one government structure, under a new Chief Executive.

We’re transforming so we can deliver modern, quality, value-for-money public services for islanders, that are effective and responsive to the needs of our community and stakeholders, as well as establishing a right- first-time culture.

We aim to support a more sustainable society, underpinned by a sustainable, internationally-competitive economy and delivered by a strong partnership between a modern government, responsible business and islanders.

We will develop the skills that support our island’s current and future employment needs and improve the life chances of all islanders, and ensure that our public service has the right people, visible leadership and collaborative culture in place to deliver the policies and services that Jersey needs.

And we will develop clear, transparent and responsive policies, combined with sound business management processes, to create the right framework for politicians to lead a modern society that competes internationally.

This is a fantastic time to be working with the States of Jersey, at the cusp of changes that will not only benefit the islanders of today, but will build the foundations of a prosperous economy and sustainable society that will benefit future generations too.

Charlie Parker, Chief Executive of the States of Jersey and Head of the Public Service
