The Policy and Resources Committee has today announced that Mark de Garis will continue to act in an interim Chief Executive role for the next six months after which it intends to advertise the position.
The Committee intends to give careful consideration over the next few months to determine the detail of what is required from the role having regard to the current challenges faced in the public sector and the Island. This is a pivotal position and the Committee must ensure the job description and interview process meet expectations.
Deputy Peter Ferbrache, President of the Policy & Resources Committee said:
"We will spend time making sure the next appointment meets the current needs of the States and the community, but at the same time, the Committee is very mindful of the pressures facing the Island and the need to drive forward the modernisation agenda and implement the Government Work Plan without delay. We are giving the interim Chief Executive and his senior team, with their experience and knowledge, our full backing to move this work forward in line with the wishes of the States."
