Applications Open For Interim Government CEO

Applications are open for an interim government chief executive to replace Charlie Parker.

It was announced last month that Mr. Parker will step down as CEO, following the controversy over his non-executive directorship with UK firm NewRiver.

The interim CEO will be in place for between 6 and 12 months.

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in January 2021 and appointed soon after that. 

The applications will be looked at by an 'Appointment Panel', which consists of:

  • Chief Minister Senator John Le Fondre
  • Dame Janet Paraskeva - Jersey Appointments Commission
  • Peter Charalambous - Jersey Appointments Commission
  • Jane Burgess - UK Civil Service Commissioner
  • An independent Jersey member yet to be appointed to the panel.

The chosen candidate will stay in post until a permanent CEO is appointed.

"It is extremely important for the public sector to have strong leadership so we can continue to build on the ambitious Government transformation programme, started by the current Chief Executive.

"The Government is determined to continue to drive transformational change and improve the quality of life for Islanders. The interim CEO will need to be someone who can ensure that progress to date is not lost, and that we maintain the pace of transformation without interruption.

"I would very much encourage all Jersey candidates who have the relevant experience and qualifications to consider applying for this vital role." - Constable Richard Buchanan, Vice-Chair of the States Employment Board.

More details, along with information on how to apply, can be found here.
