(CMR) Civil Service employee Renita Barnes joined the Governor’s Office earlier this month on a new secondment initiative for potential future leaders of the Cayman Islands Government.
Barnes joined after a competitive internal recruitment process and will spend between 6 months and a year working with the team as Corporate Services and Media Officer.
This is the first time a scheme of this type has run in the Governor’s Office, and it will give Renita a unique opportunity to learn much about the relationship between the UK and the Cayman Islands.
“In working with us, Renita will develop an in-depth understanding of my role and what my team does to support both me and the Cayman Islands Government. The knowledge Renita gains will stand her in excellent stead as she progresses in her career, and will help ensure she brings the insights afforded by this novel experience to bear on future roles,” Governor Martyn Roper said.
