Volunteer Role Description
Tenant Inspectors

Tenant Inspectors work with us to improve services for all tenants and leaseholders. They get an insight into our services and procedure and test our services to help shape services to meet the needs of others.

Scrutiny Panel Members

A great opportunity to review our services and make recommendations for improvements for all tenants.

What is a scrutiny group?

A scrutiny group is a small group of residents who work independently to research a specific topic in depth to see if there are areas of improvement. These improvements could result in money saved, services changed or training programmes introduced.

What's the purpose?

The purpose of our Scrutiny Group is to scrutinise and report on Torus’ services. It holds the Company to account by challenging Service Teams to improve performance by identifying areas for improvement and offering recommendations. The tenant's perspective is an important part of this process.

The role

You will work alongside senior staff and tenant and leasehold representatives from across our three heartlands. The groups work is reported to the Landlord Operations Committee (LOC) who oversee and make decisions on local customer service standards and performance.

As a member of the group, you will:

  • receive help and training,
  • have access to the relevant equipment to help you to participate digitally – a device and internet access
  • develop a wide range of skills which may help if you were applying for jobs or looking for voluntary work.
  • Use your existing skills and experience
  • meet new people and make new friends.

The group meets every month. Currently this is happening virtually due to Covid-19, but in future there will be opportunities to meet virtually or face to face.

We cover all reasonable out of pocket expenses.
