We’re in the exciting process of creating a new Tenant Experience Committee, which will operate at the heart of Havebury, reporting directly to our Board. The Committee will ensure that we’re all hearing your voice loud and clear and that you are able to influence all our tenant facing policies and services.
It will gather feedback from a wide range of tenants through surveys, panels, groups, and all other interactions you might have with us. The Committee will be made up of ten people, tenants, and non-tenants, but with tenants in the majority.
We are now actively seeking a Vice-Chair of the committee, who must be a tenant. Not only does the Vice-Chair have an important role to play in this, but they would also have a seat on the main Havebury Board.
In terms of time commitment, you’d be required to attend four committee meetings a year, four board meetings a year and two strategy days. Our meetings currently run between 5 pm and 7 pm usually on a Tuesday evening.
You would need to ensure you had time to read the papers beforehand and be able to take part in occasional other activities. These formal roles are paid, and you would receive £5,000 per year for your service. If you are in receipt of benefits this should not be a barrier, but you would need to seek independent advice as to whether this would affect these.
Although preferable, no previous experience of being on a board or committee is required, and we will very happily provide training, support, and mentorship. To find out more, click here for the role profile.
