Responded:3 July 2019
The Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) confirm that we hold no adverts for appointment in relation to the two individuals mentioned above. Selection of consultants is dependant upon the role to be filled. Some experts in the field are secured directly, some appointments are advertised externally, and some are secured through agencies.
They are consultants to the PFEW; therefore, oversight of these consultants is handled internally. Any complaints would be made to the Secretary of the relevant Board or through the National Secretary.
Yes we have received complaints.
Consultants are paid approximately £300 per case taken.
