Living and Working in Guernsey

The second largest Channel Island, Guernsey is a thriving, well-regulated centre for offshore finance, and with its unspoilt scenery, cobbled streets and historic monuments, prides itself as a haven of natural beauty and charm.

With a population of around 60,000 on 24 square miles, it has kept the quaint appeal of its French roots, whilst becoming an attractive destination to settle in. It has good air links to London and other regional airports, as well as the northern coast of France, and connections by sea to the UK, France and the other Channel Islands.

Independently governed, the level of services is very high and the Guernsey community pride themselves in maintaining a safe and approachable environment for families and professionals to reside in. High standards of education, good employment opportunities and a well-established local training agency provide an excellent base for career development.

Ogier has active sports and social committees through which our staff get involved in a wide range of activities. As well as beautiful cliff path walks and various cycle routes meandering through the countryside and coastal areas, Guernsey’s local waters provide an enviable centre for sailing and other water sports. Boasting award winning beaches and spectacular views of the surrounding Channel Islands and Normandy coast, it is a permanent stepping stone for cultural expeditions and a perfect example of comfortable island living.
