Advisors are individuals with expertise, experience and status in the professional fields covered by the registers, or in the training, assessment, use and employment of registered professionals in the deaf and deafblind fields.
Advisors are appointed on an ongoing basis and paid a small honorarium to cover their time and expenses. The overall mix of skills and experience available on the list of Advisors is reviewed against operational requirements on an annual basis.
Our professional standards advisors have a wide range of skills, experience and expertise that we draw on to support our decision making. We regularly review the skills and experience mix we have access to through our professional standards advisors and recruit new advisors to make sure they can cover all the areas we need.
If you would like to be considered as a professional standards advisor or a lay advisor, please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your skills match our advice needs, we will be in touch with more information.
We also recruit people who are not experts or registered professionals to bring a public or consumer point of view that balances our decision making. We call these people 'lay advisors', most often they take part in complaint committees. If you would like to participate in our processes as a lay advisor, please contact email@example.com.
