Public sector staffing and vacancies (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 11 February 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Please may I have:

The total number of public sector / States of Jersey jobs, if all were filled and there were no vacancies.


How many of these roles are currently vacant? (as of 31st December 2021)

A breakdown / table by role, showing how these vacancies are distributed. 


As at the 31st December 2021 there are 7566 staff currently employed by the Government of Jersey (excluding zero hour) but this does not include any vacancies (please see response to B and C below). 

B and C 

After a review of the available data we are unable to provide a picture of current vacancy levels or the requested breakdown of vacancies at the present time. To provide an accurate answer to this request would require manipulation of data. The Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 does not require a Scheduled Public Authority to manipulate data to provide a response. Therefore, this information is not held.  The Integrated Technology Solution (ITS) Programme currently being rolled out will provide the Government of Jersey with better quality of data relating to budgeting and staffing.   

Note: zero-hour staff are not included in the above response.
