Non-voting member of States committee


**For information only: Applications closed**. 



The Committee for the Environment and Infrastructure is looking for islanders with relevant experience to join as non-voting members. 

Deputy Lindsay de Sausmarez, Committee President, is particularly keen to hear from you if you have significant experience of housing, energy, climate change or infrastructure.

You’ll attend all of the committee’s meetings, reading the papers beforehand and playing a full part in discussions – you just won’t be able to vote.

 The Committee meets fortnightly on Monday mornings and may meet on a Friday morning for presentations or urgent business.

You’ll essentially be volunteering your expertise to help Guernsey – but you will be paid £2,154 per annum as a contribution towards your time.

 Eligibility criteria are the same as for a Deputy – you need to be 18 or over, on the electoral roll and have lived in Guernsey for two years, or for periods adding up to five years.
