Chief Operating Officer, Fiduciary - Jersey (36167/006)

Job Description

A premier player within the fiduciary services sector in the Channel Islands and other jurisdictions globally is looking to recruit a COO to provide direct line management responsibility for the managing directors of the group’s various offices.

The successful candidate will be expected to forge a strong working relationship with the global CEO, whom he/she will be expected to eventually replace within 3 years. In the interim period the role holder will assume full operational management and control of the group’s European jurisdictional businesses.

You will also review the strategic operating plans of the group’s European jurisdictional Boards to ensure that they reflect the longer term objectives and priorities established by the Holdings Board. The enhancement of relationships with the Board and key stakeholders will be a requisite, with particular emphasis on supporting the group’s acquisitive growth strategy.

Exceptional performance will be expected in other areas of key responsibilities, such as financial performance, strategic initiatives, operational matters and relationship management.

Given the seniority of this role, the position can only be held by an approved key person as required by the respective regulators. A relevant professional qualification is a must, as is an extensive working knowledge of trust and corporate services.


Significant previous directorial experience and a proven track record of leading and motivating a senior team will be required to fulfil the role, as will excellent business and financial acumen. To ensure that the most suitable candidate is selected our client is offering an above market salary and benefits package to the successful candidate. Applications are welcome from candidates without the required five years’ Jersey residence. For more information please contact Mike Bonsall on +44(0)1481 743077 or email
