Based in the Access, Equality and Inclusion Service, the Office is responsible for leading the development, delivery and monitoring of the University’s equality and diversity policy and strategy, working closely with key partners throughout the institution and beyond.

You will contribute to the work of the Equality and Diversity Office by developing and delivering a range of training and development activities relevant to equality, diversity and inclusion. The particular focus will be on the coordination, development and delivery of equality, diversity and inclusion learning, development and training opportunities for staff and students.

We particularly welcome applications from those typically underrepresented in professional higher education workplace contexts, including Black, Asian and minority ethnicity, LGBT+, and/or disabled candidates, and candidates from lower socio-economic groups.

This is a shared role with 1.2FTE (full-time equivalent) to be shared between two post-holders. The final allocation of the shared hours will be negotiated with the successful candidates. If you have a particular preference or requirement, please state this in your application (e.g. 0.2FTE, 0.4FTE, 0.6FTE, 0.8FTE, full-time, or as many as possible).
