A specialist executive search firm was appointed to identify suitable qualified candidates at an international level. A total of 52 potential candidates were considered with five being shortlisted for interview.
The interview process included a meeting with a representative group of Health and Community Services (HCS) staff who asked the candidates questions about their approach to improving culture in HCS, followed by a selection panel which included:

- Suzanne Wylie – Government of Jersey Chief Executive Officer
- Gordon Callander – Jersey GP and member of the Primary Care Body
- Richard Bell – Government of Jersey Assistant Chief Executive and Treasurer of the States.
The selection panel recommended two potential candidates. Those candidates met with the Health and Social Services Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister, prior to the Health and Social Services Minister making the appointment decision.

The rate of pay was market mapped as part of the recruitment and selection process against all candidates considered to have the skills and experience required for the position.
