A man who currently works in the office of London Mayor Sadiq Khan has been appointed the new Director of Policy for Jersey's Government.
Paul Wylie is currently responsible for policing crime and communities in the capital.
In Jersey, he'll be responsible for developing public policy to achieve the Government's priorities.
Mr Wylie says he's looking forward to his new job in Jersey:
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead and develop public policy for the Government of Jersey at this challenging time.
“My family and I are excited to move here, and I look forward to contributing more to Island life, both professionally and personally.”
Jersey's Director-General for Strategic Policy, Planning and Performance, Tom Walker, says it's a key role:
“With 17 years’ experience in public service, Paul will add strength to policy formation and delivery as we work to implement the Island’s strategic priorities.”
“Paul brings valuable expertise, which will add to the diversity of talent and expertise across our senior policy specialists. He will join us as we continue to tackle the impacts of COVID-19 and Brexit. It’s a demanding time, but he brings valuable experience of strategic analysis, policy building and operational delivery.”
He will be moving to the island with his family to take up the job in February.
