Equalities Portfolio Officer (REDEPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY) Eleanor Glanville Institute

Location: Lincoln Salary: From £31,396 per annum Please note, this post is permanent and full time at 37 hours per week. Closing Date: Thursday 16 May 2024 Interview Date: Friday 31 May 2024 Reference: COS306A

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Equalities Portfolio Officer to join us in the Eleanor Glanvillle Institute (EGI).

The institute is home to the University's diversity and inclusion work, providing strategic leadership and coordination of EDI activity, and establishing a coherent EDI framework and a strategy to build an inclusive University that is both holistic and evidence based. It helps to prepare a culturally competent workforce, and a student body prepared to thrive in an increasingly global society, where understanding different cultures and values are increasingly important.

Alongside the ongoing drive to lead the University's engagement with wider EDI agendas (such as the Athena Swan and Race Equality Charters), the EGI continues to offer internationally leading interdisciplinary research, sector leading educational opportunities, and a diverse postgraduate research community.

Within this role, you will oversee the planning, development, and implementation of the portfolio of equalities-related initiatives, both current and future, utilising principles, standards and best practices. You will also manage activities that collect feedback, determine impact, and ensure that projects meet equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) expectations for time, cost and performance.

You will ensure that the EGI's portfolio of initiatives are executed at full potential, making adjustments when necessary. More broadly, you will also play a leading role in supporting the University to meet its Key Performance Indicators in relation to equalities and inclusion under the strategic plan, as well as will help us to advance further how we engage our staff and students in increasingly contributing to the formation and shape of our inclusive culture as an institution.

You must be passionate about the EDI agenda, and be able to use your own initiative to determine priorities to achieve the required output. You will be expected to establish effective collaborative working relationships across the University, working closely with PPC colleagues on the EDI agenda.

If you would like further information or an informal discussion about this exciting opportunity, please contact Abigail Powell, Professor in Sociology and Social Policy, at [email protected].

This is a redeployment opportunity for colleagues who have been placed at risk of redundancy only.
