£3.3m On Interim States' Bosses

£3.3 million pounds has been spent on interim senior civil servants in just over a year.

Freedom of Information requests have also revealed the ongoing monthly cost of their expenses and accommodation runs to around £29,000

The details of just how much Charlie Parker's top team is costing have emerged on gov.je in answer to three FOI submissions. 

Interim head of Health Anthony McKeever is being paid £27,000 a month.  That is the equivalent of a £324,000 annual salary.

Temporary department heads are costing an additional £29,000 a month in expenses and accommodation.

The States has confirmed a list of 33 senior executives who have cost a combined £3.3 million between October 2017 and November 2018.

From December onwards, we are told the estimated ongoing monthly cost is £389,600 pounds.
