Living in Jersey
Jersey is the location for people who want to work in a thriving business centre, but who want to balance that with a great lifestyle.

Direct flights to major European technology centres, including London, Dublin, Bristol, Manchester, Cambridge, Berlin, Dusseldorf and Hamburg, put Jersey at the hub of a worldwide transport network.
A relaxed pace of life, beautiful countryside, clean and pure air, southerly climate, and the ability to be on the beach minutes after leaving the office means that Jersey offers a great work-life balance.
With a selection of Michelin-starred restaurants, three championship golf courses, an abundance of outdoor activities, and a wealth of nature, heritage and culture, there is always something new to experience in Jersey.
English is the main language spoken in Jersey, and the currency is British Pound Sterling.

All property sales and leases are overseen by Jersey’s Housing Minister, who also grants licences to High Value Residents. Working with our partners Locate Jersey, we can help you find the right home for you and your family.
Jersey has a comprehensive health service that offers excellent facilities, combined with a very high standard of care. The Island also has reciprocal health agreements in place covering specific treatments that may require care at specialist UK units. Currently, investment is being made in the development of hospital services including the introduction of a range of Digital Health initiatives.
The Island has a top class education system and is a safe and secure environment for you and your family.
There are three types of schools in Jersey: free States of Jersey schools, fee-paying States of Jersey schools, and private fee-paying schools, where fees can be as little as a third of those in the UK. Jersey provides a high standard of education across the sector, outperforming schools in most parts of the UK. The Island’s school, sports, and leisure facilities, are among the best in the British Isles.
