Two senior staff within the public sector will be changing roles in moves announced by the States of Guernsey's Chief Executive today.

Two senior staff within the public sector will be changing roles in moves announced by the States of Guernsey's Chief Executive today.

Following the resignation of States of Alderney Chief Executive Victor Brownlees, the President of the States of Alderney requested support from Guernsey.

States of Guernsey Chief Executive Paul Whitfield agreed and Adrian Lewis, currently Chief Secretary to the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure, who is also a former States of Alderney Treasurer, will be seconded for the next six months to help Alderney as it recruits and transitions to a new Chief Executive.

Current Chief Secretary to the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, Jon Buckland, will now take on the lead officer role supporting the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure.

Chief Operating Officer Jason Moriarty, as part of his line management role for Chief Secretaries, will step in to support the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture for a short period while a further internal move is finalised.

Mr Whitfield said the moves were designed with his ethos of 'right person, right place, right time' in mind.

'Following the resignation of Victor Brownlees, and the subsequent request I received, I considered it crucial that we support the States of Alderney in any way possible. I'm delighted that our suggestion, to second an experienced and competent temporary CEO from our Chief Secretary pool, was accepted. I'm sure Adrian, who has considerable Alderney-related experience, will prove a real asset to the island.

'Likewise, I'm grateful to Jon for agreeing to head up the Office to the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure. Jon has extensive experience gained from leading both the former Commerce and Employment Department and the Office to the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture. That experience will ensure a seamless transition into E&I, with Jon helping the Committee deliver its varied strategic priorities.'
