Giz A Job

Seems you don’t even have to ask these days.

I am indebted to @juileanneda for this story, I’m sure I would have caught up with it, but she shortcut the process for me.

Within weeks of being found guilty of 8 counts of Misconduct, AND required to resign, it seems Mr Nick Gargan has been gifted a job by our old friends G4$.

The job as a programme director  was not advertised, nor was anyone else interviewed, and it was awarded after G4$ had told the Independent that it supported a “cooling off period” before senior officers were allowed to take up private-sector jobs. The company said that there had been an “immediate need for strategic advice”.

The initial contract only seems to be for a 4 month period, but we all know how flexible that can be.

I assume that he now features on the College’s famous Struck Off list, and whilst he is not being employed by a Police Force directly, he will come into contact with about 20 apparently, so it might be relevant?  It certainly isn’t a reference.

I can’t say that either party has done anything wrong, but I’m sure many people will be uncomfortable with the news.

Not being an expert in HR related matters I assume that “immediate need for strategic advice” means that Equal Opportunities need not apply.

No doubt a Knighthood or Peerage are also a possibility eventually too.

I can’t imagine many people in my lifetime will be paid a fortune whilst suspended, found guilty 8 times following a £half million Misconduct hearing, get a Golden Handshake deal when required to resign then walk into a job they haven’t even had to apply for.

I am available though.

  1. Is there not a legal requirement to advertise available positions?

    • I always thought there was, but they seem to have headed that one off that pass with their “immediate need for strategic advice” Not sure how valid that is though

  2. Know the right people get the right job.We should be used to this by now.
