Statement on the Director General of Growth, Housing and Environment

06 March 2020


Government Chief Executive, Charlie Parker, has issued the following statement:

“By mutual agreement, John Rogers is to leave his role as Director General for Growth, Housing and Environment (GHE) at the end of March.

“John has served the Government and the Island over many years and I am grateful for the continuity of knowledge and experience that he has shared with me over the past two years.

“Over recent months, we have been discussing future changes to the structure of Growth, Housing and Environment and in February we announced the proposal to establish a new Economy department, drawn from directorates from GHE and the Office of the Chief Executive.

“John and I have discussed further potential changes and what his role might be as part of these changes. After some reflection, John has agreed that after 16 years in the Government it is time for him to take on a new challenge in Jersey.

“I want to thank John for his service, especially in infrastructure, where he has overseen some significant capital projects, including the energy from waste plant at La Collette, the new sewage treatment works and the recent construction of the new Les Quennevais School.

“We will shortly begin the process to recruit a new Director General to take the department through the next stage of its modernisation in a fair and open recruitment exercise, in line with the normal States Employment Board and Jersey Appointments Commission procedures.

“In the meantime, the States Employment Board has agreed the arrangements for a new acting Director General. An announcement will be made shortly.”

John Rogers said: “I’ve been very proud to have worked in the Government for the past 16 years, ten of which have been as a Chief Officer and Director General.

“I believe that this is the right time for me to take a different career path, in which I can continue to make a positive contribution to Jersey.

“I wish all of the staff at GHE well in keeping the Island running and leading on the important changes and initiatives that will benefit Islanders for many years to come”

For reasons of employee confidentiality, the Government will not be making any further statement.
