A rare opportunity has arisen for three individuals to join the Board of Jersey Advisory and Conciliation Service.
The Jersey Advisory and Conciliation Service (JACS) is the independent employment relations service for the island, created by the Jersey Advisory and Conciliation Service (Jersey) Law in March 2003. As JACS embraces it’s its 20th year, they continue to be passionate about the delivery of the high-quality, independent, impartial services which they provide to islanders. They understand how good employee relations are crucial to a functioning economy.
Board member recruitment
They are recruiting three motivated individuals to join JACS’s committed and friendly board as they work together to embrace forthcoming opportunities and tackle challenges.
They are looking for candidates who can demonstrate expertise in one or a number of the following areas:
- Finance (qualified accountant or equivalent)
- Commercial acumen – from a large or small business background
- Experience or involvement with the not-for-profit sector.
Candidates should also have the ability to work strategically, enjoy working collaboratively, understand effective governance and have a genuine interest in employee relations and discrimination in Jersey. Previous board experience isn’t required.
They are committed to valuing diversity and to equality of opportunity for employment, career, and personal development. They believe that people from different backgrounds bring perspectives and skills that create fresh ideas, thinking and approaches which make the way work is undertaken more effective and efficient.
The board are not paid, and the time commitment is very manageable around work, at around six meetings per year. The tenure for board members is three years, with the opportunity to extend by a further two terms. Candidates must be Jersey residents.
If you believe you have the skills and qualities they are looking for, and the information in their candidate pack speaks to you, they would love to hear from you!

Our goal is to remove bias from the hiring process, so we are asking role-related questions for the first stage of the process. Please provide evidence and examples from your work history or other aspects of your life to answer the questions and demonstrate how you meet the criteria required.
We encourage you to write your answers in Microsoft Word and copy and paste them into the online form when ready. Please note that your response to each of the four questions shouldn’t exceed 250 words.
Once you start your online application, you will be able to see all role-related questions. You can save your application and return to it later if you wish.
Your answers will be anonymised, reviewed and scored by the selection panel. We will use these scores to shortlist for interviews, at which stage we will also review CV’s.
If you would like an informal discussion about the role, please get in touch with our recruitment adviser at Eastside People, Bernice Rook, at email@example.com – having a call of this kind will not influence the success or otherwise of the application.
We want you to have every opportunity to demonstrate your skills, ability, and potential; please contact us if you require any assistance or adjustment so that we can help make the application process work for you.
