Scrutiny Coordination Group

Join our resident-led Scrutiny Coordination Group

Thank you for your interest, recruitment for the group is now closed.

We’re looking for people to join our resident-led Scrutiny Coordination Group. 

You’ll be part of an enthusiastic and dedicated group of residents, who want to make sure we’re providing quality services and a good customer experience.

What’s involved?

You’ll play an active part in planning a programme to review our services (for example, our lettings service). You’ll agree what needs to be looked at and how other residents can get involved.

Once the results of the scrutiny are in, you’ll work with the rest of the group to write recommendations for the business.

Why take on the role?

You’ll play an integral part in shaping the future of our business and the services we provide our residents - including you.

Whilst the role is voluntary, you’ll receive training and support and have your travel costs covered.

When the group meets

The Scrutiny Coordination Group meets for a few hours about six times a year. The meetings are normally held at our Woodlands office in Newbury.

Although this is a voluntary position, you’ll get training and support (including IT equipment if it’s needed) and out-of-pocket expenses.

Is this something you’d like to do?

You don’t need any formal qualifications to get involved – we’re just looking for someone who:

  • takes an interest in our residents’ priorities so their views are heard as the scrutiny programme is developed
  • enjoys working positively and productively with others and can contribute ideas and views to help shape our services
  • can use independent judgement to define why each scrutiny is needed and what it will cover
  • can monitor the quality and progress of scrutiny reviews
  • can talk with others, promote us and bring back examples of how a service is being done well elsewhere
  • is passionate and committed to our social purpose and can inspire and motivate others.

If you think you’d like to become part our Scrutiny Coordination Group, all you need to do is register your interest 29 April 2019. We’ll then be in touch to discuss what happens next.
