(CNS Business): Janesha Simpson will be returning to public service on Monday following her appointment as Interim Senior Deputy Clerk of Courts and Registrar of the Financial Services Court. She joins the court from Maples and Calder, where she was an associate, but Simpson is also a former crown counsel with the Portfolio of Legal Affairs, where she handled criminal, civil and international matters, as well as freedom of information requests for the department.

“We welcome Ms Simpson and look forward to putting her extensive expertise to full use here at the Courts,” said the judicial administrator, Suzanne Bothwell.

In 2004 Simpson completed her law degree from the University of Liverpool and a Bar vocational course at Inns of Court School of Law in London before being called to the Bar of England and Wales. She then undertook an articled clerkship with the Portfolio of Legal Affairs and was called to the Cayman Islands Bar in March 2007.

She also obtained a Master of Law degree from the London School of Economics in 2005. Simpson’s professional development includes obtaining a diploma in international trust management and being certified as both an anti-money laundering specialist and an insurance practitioner.

    Wow so many Caymanians being promoted in the civil service. Come on private sector you can do it too.

    • The fact is that 25% of the civil service is still made up of expats. The GOC should focus on training Caymanians first for those jobs rather than chasing the private sector where the bottom line has to drive everything related to hiring.

        Garfield that 75% is teachers policemen and prison officers. We need Caymanians to step up and apply for these jobs. By the way I think 75% Caymanian is excellent. I can’t think of too many large private sector companies that has that many Caymanians.

          I’m quite happy when the expats employed are because there just isn’t enough locals to fill the position or when they are actively training a Caymanian to replace them. Otherwise, Caymanians reach a glass ceiling or a complete blockage from entering the marketing.

          Did you read the article on CIMA’s promotions? An expat was promoted without the article stating that Caymanians have been assigned to understudy her.
