From the press release:

We are also the regulator for Jersey’s telecommunication and postal industries. Across all areas of work, our primary mission is to promote consumer welfare in Jersey. The JCRA is a member of the International Competition Network and takes a leading role in the development of competition law and policy in small economies.
The JCRA currently is recruiting an in-house Economic Adviser with a view to commencing in April 2009.

Having just returned from Rosh Hashana services (lots of repenting to do this year), I discovered that Jersey has an active synagogue. Maybe I should convince my wife and daughters that we are in need of an academic Sabbatical.
