Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion - London
The outgoing post-holder has achieved a great deal in terms of diversity and equality within our workforce and for our homeless clients and she is a tough act to follow. We are now looking for someone equally dynamic to take our diversity and equality outcomes to new heights.
You will lead and drive imaginative strategic initiatives based on a sound understanding of the complexity of the issues surrounding diversity and equality rather than simply regurgitating 'received wisdom'.
This will be a cross-organisational role with which you will be given significant autonomy in your methods.
- Set measurable and realistic outcomes and deliver on these;
- Develop strategies, policies and deliver high impact training;
- Provide professional leadership by advising and influencing the board, directors and managers;
- Lead on the mainstreaming of values and behaviours across St Mungo's Broadway.
You will have an in depth understanding of current research on and different approaches to diversity and equality. Most importantly you will be able to demonstrate experience of developing and implementing equalities initiatives that have demonstrated positive outcomes in the recruitment and advancement of people from minority groups.
You will be a skilled networker and influencer. Experience of contributing to the successful delivery of organisational development and change programmes is essential, as is experiencing of translating strategy into pragmatic operational delivery. You will be an energetic implementer. You must have a genuine interest in working for a homelessness charity.
