Civil servants' permission to work from abroad since May 2022 (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 27 November 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Plese provide the following information:-


The number of Jersey Civil Servants who have been given permission to work from abroad since the election in May 2022. 


The locations where people have been allowed to work from. 


How long they have been allowed to work from abroad.


Whether the opportunity to work from abroad is used to attract workers to the civil service.


A to C

The Information requested is currently not available centrally and would require manual enquiries to confirm with all staff their current working arrangements and location. To undertake this review would exceed the timescales prescribed in the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014. Therefore, Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.


There is a contractual requirement for civil servants to reside in Jersey, therefore the Government of Jersey is unable to offer potential candidates the opportunity to work from abroad as part of any recruitment attraction process.

Article applied

Article 16 - A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive

(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.
