A rare opportunity has arisen for two individuals to join the Jersey Water Board as Non-Executive Directors.
Role name: Non-Executive Director
Fees for Non-Executive Directors are currently £22,000 gross, per annum.
Location and time commitment
Board meetings take place approximately every 4 to 8 weeks and between 8 and 10 times per year along with an annual Board visit (all day) and one to two strategy sessions (all day). Most meetings generally take no more than 4-5 hours. In addition, all directors are required to attend the AGM, which is scheduled to coincide with a Board meeting date.
Board members service on an initial three year term and are eligible for re-appointment for up to two additional consecutive terms of three years.
Jersey Water is the sole provider of treated water to the Island and supplies approximately 95% of all households in Jersey. We are passionate about the role we play in the community and the service we provide and are proud of our performance, which in many areas is industry leading.
Jersey Water is community focussed and our people have a strong positive can-do culture intent on delivering great quality water and customer service to Islanders.
Board member recruitment
We are recruiting for two new Non-Executive Directors, one to join our Audit Committee who must have a strong financial awareness and for the other role, we are looking for candidates who can demonstrate expertise in one or both of the following areas:
- People, culture and organisational change – this is important as we are mid-way through a business transformation programme focussed on building resilience in our people, systems and processes.
- Sustainability – we are looking for an NED to support our sustainability strategy and champion this area of our work.
We are looking for candidates who can bring demonstrable strategic leadership experience, who understand effective governance, enjoy working collaboratively, and who have the ability to marry the financial drivers of a commercial business with the need to maintain public trust and integrity in the delivery of essential public services.
Jersey Water is committed to valuing diversity and to equality of opportunity for employment, career, and personal development. We 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. We know that the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. We are committed to continuous improvement in this space. Our new Board Members will help inform this journey.
If you believe you have the skills and qualities we are looking for, and the information in our candidate pack makes your heart beat a little faster, we look forward to hearing from you!
