Scottish Housing Regulator recruiting tenant advisors

Scottish Housing RegulatorThe Scottish Housing Regulator is offering tenants of social landlords the chance to get involved directly in the regulator’s work and bring a tenant perspective to its scrutiny of landlords’ services.

This new initiative builds on the work of the regulator’s existing tenant assessors, who have worked successfully with the organisation over the last 10 years.

The regulator believes that involving tenants in its work will help ensure that it stays focussed on the issues that are most important to them.

Tenants are a diverse group with different needs and priorities, and the regulator is looking to appoint a pool of up to 12 tenant advisors which reflect this. Tenant advisors will be volunteers who help to gather and report tenants’ views on the information landlords publish for tenants, how services are delivered and tenants are consulted.

Christine Macleod, director of regulation (governance and performance), said: “Protecting tenants’ interests is at the heart of our work and we know that tenants welcome talking to other tenants about the issues that affect them. Involving Tenant Advisors in our work helps us to ensure that we focus on the things that matter most to tenants.”

The Tenant Information Service (TIS) is managing the recruitment on the regulator’s behalf.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 16th March.
