Head of the Public Service resigns

22 March 2023

Suzanne Wylie, Chief Executive and Head of the Public Service, has advised the States Employment Board of her intention to resign from her role. 

Before taking up her position in Jersey, Suzanne was the Chief Executive of Belfast City Council and she will be returning to the city to take on a new opportunity that allows her to be closer to her family. 

The Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore, has accepted the resignation and confirmed that a proper appointment process will be put in place to ensure a planned transition and for the organisation to continue to deliver for the public. 

She said: “I would like to thank Suzanne for her professionalism and hard work during her time as Chief Executive. 

“Suzanne has had a positive impact since starting with the Government of Jersey and we respect her wishes to return to Belfast. 

“Suzanne is successfully working through transformations across the Government, from the turnaround team in Health and Community Services to the formation of Jersey’s Cabinet Office. 

“These priorities have been dealt with alongside navigating officers through the recovery stages of the series of major incidents that have affected our Island. Suzanne will continue in these endeavors for the next few months while we look to appoint a successor. We wish her all the success in her future.”
