The NCOA are proud to announce the appointment of its first National Secretary Simon Bashford. Simon has been appointed to the role of National Secretary. His appointment will be for 5 years.
NCOA Chair said “Simon is well known to most of you in the organisation as a result of his years of experience in SOCA and supporting members in all aspects of consultation/negotiation, TUPE & COSOP transfers and every arena surrounding Misconduct & Discipline. Simon has been outspoken and passionate about the need for a united NCA staff and opposing any two tier system of workforce”.
Simon said “I am very proud to take up this role on behalf of the members of the NCOA. I have huge confidence in the very dedicated members of the NCOA executive committee and it will be a pleasure to work alongside them for the next 5 years. Personally, I have seen the NCOA receive tremendous support from our members and I will see that this continues. I am committed to providing a bespoke union acting independently of the employer, free from any political bias or affiliation and focussing solely on the issues and needs of National Crime Agency officers”.
