Information for Scrutineers

Scrutineers are Chartered Geologists and Chartered Scientists who have experience in assessing competencies and who are willing and able to interview and provide advice for Chartership applicants. 

The Society holds this work in high esteem and is grateful to the Scrutineers for their efforts in helping applicants on their quest for Chartership. The Society also gratefully recognises the contribution made by the employers of the Scrutineers who, by readily allowing them time off, enable us to provide this service to the Fellowship.

We try to provide interviews in various venues throughout the UK (and in a number of places overseas), so we are always looking for new Scrutineers to join our panel and help us ensure we can find appropriate matches for our Applicants.

​Become a Scrutineer

Chartered Fellows with over 5 years’ experience post-Chartership, or with a considerable number of years’ experience pre-Chartership, are encouraged to apply to join the panel.

A job description and an application form are available to download on this page. An outline of the Scrutineering Process is also provided, and links to the Society's relevant regulations are also shown.

We also encourage Scrutineers to review all the forms and guidance provided to Applicants and the Sponsors.
