Hounslow Highways recruiting 20 Lay Assessors

14 Mar

Hounslow Highways is recruiting 20 volunteers from the community to act as independent assessors of Hounslow Highways’ work throughout the wards in Hounslow.

There will be one lay assessor per ward. The assessors will be recruited in March with an induction in early April this year. We are seeking volunteers to represent their ward.

The volunteers will be trained and inducted by Hounslow Highways staff to give them an understanding of safety on site, how we work and where we will be operating.

The training will include introductions to our teams and site supervisors so that the volunteers and site crews are familiar with each other when audits are undertaken.

The purpose of lay assessors is to provide feedback to us on our services, help us understand residents’ perception of the highways network and our services, and to be an ambassador for the borough’s roads.

They will look at different aspects of the service, including safety, quality, accessibility, customer care, environmental impact and good working practices.

Qualities of a lay assessor include having an objective, balanced and neutral view, good communications skills and an interest in improving the borough’s roads.

We would ask for a day each month from each volunteer plus a quarterly visit to our offices to gain direct feedback with our staff. Volunteers will be asked to commit for one year as an initial commitment.

If you are interested in coming along to understand more please contact us at businessmanagement@hounslowhighways.org.

Please register your interest by 31 March 2014.
