The role of Chief Executive for the Falkland Islands Government is an exciting opportunity in an unparalleled location of outstanding natural beauty. As Head of the Public Service, the Chief Executive has ultimate responsibility for overseeing sound and prudent Government and for delivering the Islands’ ambitious strategic plans. With a broad and varied remit, there is substantial responsibility and the chance to make a significant and long-lasting impact to this unique community; this opportunity is hard to beat.
As a British Overseas Territory, the Islands are independently governed and self-financing. The Island’s community is resilient and creative and seeks a truly talented individual to help create an environment where economic strength and social mobility are not purely aspirational, but manifest in solid opportunities that are open to everyone.
With an ambitious and bold outlook, you will help create the conditions that will enable investment in important social and economic priorities, programmes and services.
This is not a job for the fainthearted, but you will welcome the challenge. It calls for an exceptionally talented individual who is highly strategic, commercially astute and resilient. You will be committed to good governance and building enduring capacity throughout government. Collegiate in approach, but clear sighted on the prize, you will be rewarded with the rare chance to shape the future of an extraordinary nation.
If you have the myriad of skills and experience that this position will draw upon, please contact Michael Dobson on 020 7426 3968, Julie Myers on 07595 779915 or Matt Malone on 0113 205 6063 at our recruitment partners GatenbySanderson for an informal discussion.
