The States Employment Board is seeking a senior executive to lead public services for an interim period.
iframe place holder
We are open to candidates from a range of industries with suitable experience and able to demonstrate the skills required for an interim assignment. Whilst not essential, an understanding of governance in a political environment would be beneficial.
The current Chief Executive Officer will leave her post by the end of July 2023. It is expected that candidates should be available to start around this time, with a heavy preference for a handover to occur.
This is essentially a role for someone with the leadership skills needed to stabilise the organisation during a transitionary period and grasp the need to focus on key deliverables during their time.
The Public Service is led by the Chief Executive Officer and a team of Chief Officers, including two assistant Chief Executives. The leadership team set the bar for performance management and the interim Chief Executive will need to have a focus on modelling good line management and performance management. During this period, there are likely to be changes proposed to the substantive role of the Chief Executive Officer. The interim will need to support the Council of Ministers and States Employment Board in preparing the organisation for these changes and preparing for a comprehensive handover and induction of the new post holder.
A substantive recruitment process will start before the summer. The interim post holder would be welcome to apply for the role, on the understanding that the substantive recruitment will be an open competition.
