They are values that shape the way we run our organisation and they drive our determination to recognise and honour the fundamental value of every person. We have been recognised by the Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion (ENEI) as Highly Commended on our work under the category of Representative Workforce. We are also Bronze accredited ENEI organisation and we are striving for Silver. So we don`t simply recognise difference.

About you: 

In this influential role, you will lead the Society in ensuring that we take all practicable steps to create a representative workforce.

By drawing on your experience of equality, diversity and inclusion legislation and delivering large scale programmes of work, you will be instrumental in making sure that we live up to our ambitions, both internally and publicly. 

You must have a substantial, demonstrable understanding of discrimination legislation across the different legal jurisdictions we work in. You will also have significant experience of developing, managing and evaluating equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives, preferably at a senior or national level. Strong influencing skills and professional presence will be key to your success in this role. 

While you do not need to be based in London, you must be willing to travel regularly to our central office and occasionally to the other counties in which we operate.
