Social Security are looking for up to two people to join the Department as non-States members.
'We want to broaden our membership', said Social Security Minister, Deputy Allister Langlois.
'We hope to find people who will bring external perspective and expertise to the business of the Social Security Department. That expertise might have been gained through their own line of business. But it could equally be through links with employee groups or community organisations.'
States Departments can choose to have non-States Members on their Department Boards, alongside the political members. A Department's proposed appointments to Non-States Members' seats are put before a meeting of the full States of Deliberation for approval.
'We're casting our net wide and we have no preconceptions as to who may show an interest' said Deputy Langlois.
'But the States Rules on the Constitution of Departments makes States employees ineligible. And we don't envisage recommending candidates who have previously served as States members.'
People interested in a non-States Member's seat on Social Security are asked to contact Deputy Allister Langlois on 07781 104741 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The Social Security Department's current membership is:
- Deputy Allister Langlois - Minister,
- Deputy Sandra James MBE - Deputy Minister,
- Deputy John Gollop,
- Deputy Chris Green,
- Deputy Michelle Le Clerc.
