Digital Jersey on the hunt for Head of FinTech


Digital Jersey is looking to recruit a tech enthusiast with knowledge of digital innovation and experience in financial services to help drive the FinTech agenda in the island.

In addition to acting as the key FinTech voice on and off the island, the successful candidate will deliver a number of initiatives outlined in the island’s FinTech 'roadmap', coordinating working groups and reporting to a steering committee and board.

They will be responsible for driving the FinTech agenda in the island and liaising with stakeholders such as the Government of Jersey, the Jersey Financial Services Commission, Jersey Finance, industry partners, experts and advisors.

The job description notes that the right candidate will have "an avid interest in all things digital, a proven track record in finance and innovation and with a deep knowledge of Jersey financial services market."

The position will include travel to speak at conferences and events in a bid to raise Jersey's profile as a FinTech jurisdiction.

The recruitment drive comes as Jersey's government plans a £4million cash boost for Digital Jersey over the next four years to help attract more start-up businesses, create new jobs, subject to approval of the Government Plan.

However, Digital Jersey's CEO Tony Moretta said it might not be enough to reach all the organisation's ambitions.
