Assistant Legal Adviser

Due to the promotion of the current post holder to a more senior position in the Law Officers’ Department, we wish to recruit an additional Assistant Legal Adviser to work within the Commercial and Contentious Team of the Civil Division.

The team provides advice about contracts or contractual disputes, employment and discrimination claims, data protection and freedom of information, planning, tax, civil litigation including personal injury claims against the Minister for Health and Social Services (but excluding children law cases), and applications for judicial review. The work will often be high profile, politically sensitive and challenging. The successful applicant will have the ability to assimilate information quickly, carry out legal research and present a point of view clearly and persuasively in person, and in writing.

Applications are welcome from candidates who would be interested in the role on a full-time, part time, or job-share basis. Applications for secondments from within the Government of Jersey are particularly encouraged.

For an informal discussion please contact Advocate Darren Woodside by email on

As an inclusive employer we will create opportunities for flexible working to attract and retain talent which reflects the diversity of the communities we serve. We welcome applications for working flexible hours, part-time working and job sharing.
