About jobs and growth public policy
This policy area ensures that Islanders benefit from a strong economy and rewarding job opportunities.
Jersey depends on a sustainable and vibrant economy, underpinned by a skilled local workforce to serve it. Businesses in Jersey provide job opportunities and put money back into the local economy. It also creates wealth that sustains vital public services.
Jersey’s economic position is strong, but if the Island is to continue to enjoy one of the highest living standards in Europe, it must adapt. Global challenges include changes to regulation, the climate crisis and the technology revolution. Local challenges include an aging population, skills shortage and increasing cost of living.
