Recruitment process launched for interim Chief Executive Officer

17 May 2023

The States Employment Board (SEB) has launched the recruitment process to find an interim Chief Executive Officer to succeed Suzanne Wylie. 

The SEB is looking for an experienced senior executive to lead the Island’s Public Services for an interim period of nine to twelve months. 

Ms Wylie is to step down by the end of July, and the ambition is for an interim CEO to be in place before then.

Discussions are currently underway over changes to the role before a new CEO is appointed to the role on a permanent basis.

The interim CEO will undertake the role in its current form while those discussions continue and will oversee the organisational changes the Chief Minister has announced to the Government of Jersey. 

The successful candidate will be appointed through a fair, equitable and open process as set out in legislation, and will follow the guidance of the Jersey Appointments Commission. 

The role will be advertised both in the Island and across the British Isles. Candidates are encouraged to apply from both the public and private sectors. While not essential, an understanding of governance in a political environment would be beneficial.

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by a recruitment panel comprising the Chief Minister, as Chair of the States Employment Board, Jersey Appointments Commissioners and an independent voting member, as well as a non-voting independent chair and technical advisor. 

The Chief Minister and Chair of the States Employment Board, Deputy Kristina Moore, said: “It is important that we find the right person to lead the Public Service and continue the excellent work of Suzanne Wylie. 

“I am confident we have appropriate measures in place to ensure this is a fair and open process, and that we are able to appoint the best person for the job.”
