Description: This work presents a case study of the Chilean executive, focusing on the civil service in the period after the Pinochet dictatorship and the country’s transition to democracy. It provides synchronic and diachronic analysis of the organisation of the executive, public employment and the civil service. Both the qualitative description and statistical evidence reveal the establishment of a flexible regime of public employment with low levels of stability in senior public management positions. This research was possible thanks to financial support from the Department of Public Administration and Policy of the Universidad de Santiago de Chile under the 2018 Academic Performance Agreement. I would like to thank Matías Astete and Berenice Orvenes for their help in gathering and validating the data about senior public managers in the framework of the ‘Survival of Senior Civil Servants in the Chilean Executive Branch’ project (DOI: 10.17605/OSF.IO/WBF6M). I would also like to thank Carlos Huneeus and Carla Cisternas for their valuable comments.
