Jul 26, 2018

Shona Dunn, previously director general of the Economic and Domestic Secretariat at the Cabinet Office, took up the role of deputy to Permanent Secretary Sir Philip Rutnam on Wednesday (July 25).

Ms Dunn succeeds Patsy Wilkinson who stepped down from the position in June for an external national security role.

Cabinet Secretary Jeremy Heywood said she will “add real value” to the Home Office and will help Sir Philip deliver cultural change.

Ms Dunn said: “It’s a real privilege to have been asked to take on this role and I am delighted to be joining the Home Office at such an important time.

“I very much look forward to meeting all those who work in our borders, immigration and citizenship system, and to working with them, the wider Home Office and all of our partner organisations, to deliver on some of this government’s top priorities.”
