We’re continuing to build a new and exciting future for Jersey that is modern, sustainable and prosperous for all. It’s a future that will see people, business and government come together to collaborate in a way they’ve never done before. We are calling this Team Jersey and is an important milestone in delivering our strategy: 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.

As Group Medical Director you are responsible for representing the patient at the highest level of the organisation and for providing strategic, professional and operational leadership to medical staff within health and community services.  Working closely with the Chief Nurse and the Group Managing Director you will develop our Health and Community Clinical Strategy, ensuring the island’s new hospital supports and enables the delivery of the strategy.  You will be a critical force in the healthcare modernisation agenda, driving forward the strategic changes to the health and community portfolio being implemented as part of the Target Operating Model and new models of care. 

To deliver transformation and safe, resilient services, you’ll work as part of Team Jersey in the development of clinical strategies and wider corporate change. That means you need to be a highly credible figure with the ability and confidence to build strategic relationships across multi-disciplinary teams, with GPs and with other external stakeholders. Meanwhile, you’ll also be used to setting and maintaining the highest standards in clinical governance and providing excellent professional advice to the Director General and the Health Minister. Your experience will include system-wide working incorporating acute, primary and community care, and mental health services.  With an understanding of the impact of national policy and regulatory frameworks on the medical profession, your focus set firmly on the future, you’ll be equipped to give our Island – and its people – the tomorrow they deserve.

Bring the boundless talent we’re looking for and you can help lead the biggest transformation in our government for a generation. Join Team Jersey and find your unique place in the world.
