Living and Working in Jersey

Jersey is a British Crown Dependency situated 100 miles (160kms) south of mainland Britain it is the most southerly of the British Isles - in fact it is just 14 miles (22 kms) from the coast of Normandy, France. Surrounded by stunning coastline and sweeping beaches, despite its compact size - just 9 miles by 5 miles (14 kms by 8 kms) - Jersey squeezes in a diverse landscape including beautiful rural countryside (home to its famous brown cows!), and its bustling capital, the town of St Helier.

Jersey welcomes skilled people to seek work on the Island, however preference is given to residents known as ‘Qualified’ these are people who have either lived on the island for 10 years, were born in Jersey, are the child of a person born on the island or child of a registered resident.

As Jersey is a small island there are restrictions placed on the accommodation that is available to rent or buy, those who are qualified residents are entitled to rent any type of accommodation they choose. All other persons can occupy ‘non-qualified’ accommodation; this covers a range of living accommodation from flats, apartments, bedsits, rooms studios and residential lodging accommodation in Jersey.
