You’ll also have a breadth of knowledge across the economy, environment and the community in balancing public protection and commercial practice.

Similarly, as an inspirational leader for the Food Safety Team you will apply your breadth of knowledge to ensure Jersey remains a centre of excellence as a food destination, providing high levels of public protection in relation to Food Safety as we look to significantly update our regulatory framework and bring all stakeholders with us on this exciting journey.
