Digital Jersey formally constituted

06 July 2012

This week sees the legal formation of Digital Jersey Limited, a new independent organisation set up to represent digital industries in Jersey and to promote the Island as a centre for digital business.

The digital sector includes areas like e-commerce, information and communications technology (ICT) services and data hosting. The organisation’s ultimate aim will be to create employment opportunities for local people.

Governance of Digital Jersey will be through an independent board. The post of Chair is being advertised this week, after which recruitment of a Chief Executive and Non-Executive Directors of Digital Jersey will begin. The recruitment process will be extensive, with a view to getting the best available people to run the new entity.

As part of Digital Jersey, the Chair, CEO and Board will work with Government and the private sector to aid understanding of the digital economy and the opportunities it brings. It will work on developing relevant education and skills, promoting legislative guidance and providing strategic direction. Although initially funded by Government, Digital Jersey will remain wholly independent and will seek external sources of funding in the future.

Once operational, Digital Jersey will develop an initial one-year plan to provide foundations for development, followed by a 2 to 5 year strategic overview.

The Minister for Economic Development, Senator Alan Maclean, commented “I am very pleased that the recruitment of the Chair for Digital Jersey is about to commence. Recruitment for the CEO will begin shortly, and the remainder of the Board will be put in place as quickly as possible.

“We are looking for progressive, dynamic people with expertise and interest in the digital industry who will contribute to the development of an effective strategy for the growth of this whole sector in Jersey.”
