About the Office of the Chief Executive​

The Office of the Chief Executive (OCE) operates across all of the departments. It provides strategic and operational support to the Council of Ministers in the design and delivery of Jersey’s long-term strategic framework.

The department brings together a number of corporate functions, coordinates cross-governmental work and enables the Chief Executive to have close oversight of principal risks to our island.

Chief of Staff, Government business and Ministerial support

The Chief of Staff supports the Council of Ministers by providing advanced, detailed, high-quality and impartial briefing information for Ministers to support their decisions, and provide challenge where appropriate.

External Relations

External Relations protect and promote Jersey’s interests internationally. This includes managing Jersey’s response to Brexit, building and maintaining Jersey’s relationship with the UK Government and with the EU. The department also works to increase access to and improve trade links with Global Markets.

Finance Services and Digital Economy

Finance Services and Digital Economy secures the future of Jersey’s financial services and digital sectors through the development of policy and legislation and promoting efficiency and effectiveness of associated arm’s length organisations.

Communications Directorate

The Communications Directorate ensures the Government effectively communicates with Islanders, stakeholders and employees, providing information about services, informing them about their legal obligations, notifying them about deadlines, publicising Government performance, encouraging them to take action, and alerting them to changes that affect them.
