Recruitment of panel members
Are you looking to play an active part in your community?
Are you able to scrutinise and evaluate material to make independent, balanced, and fair decisions?
The Housing Appeals Tribunal was set up in 2005, in accordance with the States Housing (Tribunal and Appeals) (Guernsey) Regulations, 2005. The Tribunal is a mechanism for social housing tenants to appeal against decisions made by Housing or the Guernsey Housing Association. This can be in relation to rent payments, rent rebates, tenancy reviews, allocations, and applications for social housing.
The Tribunal consists of a panel of independent members who are appointed by the States and who meet as required to hear and determine appeals. On each occasion when an appeal is lodged, three members of the Housing Appeals Panel are appointed to form a Tribunal to consider the matter, which is usually done on a rotation basis.
No previous experience is required for these posts and Guernsey-based training will be provided to enable you to undertake your duties.
