Jersey is a great place to live and work. It offers all the benefits of island living, with good schools, low levels of crime, and of course the sunny weather and beaches for which it is renown.  Relocating here means you’ll enjoy the best that outdoor island life has to offer. From beach walks to coastal drives, boat trips to water sports, and heritage sites to rolling countryside – you’ll have your pick of what to see and do. It’s also only a quick flight or ferry trip to France and the UK. Meanwhile, the island’s gigabit broadband infrastructure means it’s brilliantly connected to the rest of the world.

We know that moving to be Jersey can feel challenging, so along with a competitive salary, you will have access to generous benefits and relocation assistance. In Jersey, you will pay less tax. The standard rate of income tax in Jersey is 20% with an extra 1% for a long-term care fund. However, you may also be entitled to reliefs and allowances that reduce your tax bill

Closing date: 22 February 2021.
