Reserve Sergeants representative - Zoe Wakefield
Contact No; 07792 721935
I am the Sergeant's Reserve Seat Rep which is the seat reserved for the minority sex by the Sex Discrimination Act 1975. This has recently been repealed by the Equality Act 2010 but for now, the position on the federation remains. This means that I represent all female sergeants across the force. I have been a fed rep for 8 years and have 19 years police service with Thames Valley and Hampshire. I have worked in a variety of roles and stations. I am currently a TPT Sergeant at Gosport.
I have 2 children and have previously worked part time and on flexible working arrangements. I can give advice on all matters relating to equality, grievances, maternity/pregnancy, part-time/flexible working, disability, sickness, etc.
I am the Equality Lead for the federation and I am currently working on disability and maternity issues within the force as well as involvement with the Force Change Programme around flexible working. I am on the Force Fitness Test working group, the Force Fairness & Equality Strategic Group, the Force Fairness & Equality Delivery (Disability) Group and a member of the Inspire Network.
