Mr Quinn joined Jersey Government in July 2018 from Westminster City Council, where he had previously worked alongside Government the then-CEO of the States of Jersey, Charlie Parker.

The Cabinet Office, headed by Mr Parker’s successor Suzanne Wileycomprises three former departments within Jersey Civil Service: the Office of the Chief Executive, the Chief Operating Office and Strategic Policy, Planning and Performance.

In her August 2022 ministerial decision, Deputy Moore said: “The establishment of the Cabinet Office will support the development of a more focused and coordinated approach to drive implementation of the Council of Ministers’ shared priorities and overall improvements across the civil service. “

The consultation process with other leaders in the public service is ongoing.

The Jersey Government says it will not comment on the trial.
