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.
“I would like to thank Suzanne for her professionalism and hard work during her time as Chief
“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
“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.”
