Before entering politics, Jorbenadze worked as a doctor and a KBG officer; in this capacity, in 1992 he was called to take up the post of deputy minister of health. He left the cabinet briefly the following year, but soon rejoined it as health minister. In 1999, he was given the responsibility for social security, and the next year that for labour. When President Shevardnadze dismissed his cabinet, in the aftermath of a controversial storming of a television station by security agents, Jorbenadze was appointed head of the cabinet in December 2001.
