The Government is recruiting for non-executive directors (NEDs) to sit on the Health and
Community Services’ (HCS) Department Board.
In 2022, the Minister for Health and Social Services set out her intention to establish a new,
independently chaired HCS Board in response to the review undertaken by Professor Hugo
The new Board will be established, subject to approval of the States Assembly on 23 May,
on an interim basis pending development of legislation to establish a statutory board with
fiduciary and decision-making powers.
Up to five NEDs are being appointed to work alongside the Chair and HCS executive
directors in providing visible leadership and driving improvements across the Department.
The NEDs will be the founding members of the Board and will:
- Prepare the department for inspection by the Jersey Care Commission
- Develop and embed robust governance framework
- Shape a positive and inclusive culture for the Department
Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Karen Wilson, said: “This interim Board will
bring together the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to critically examine and
constructively challenge HCS.
“This is a demanding but exciting role that will be at the forefront of real change and is a
unique opportunity to help shape the Island’s future health and care services.”
Islanders who are interested in the role are asked to contact Robin Staveley, Serena
Dobson or Stephanie Crossland of GatenbySanderson at email@example.com for an informal discussion.
