About us.

Manchester Metropolitan University is an ambitious university and an inspiring place to work. One of the largest universities in the UK, located at the heart of a vibrant and exciting city, we trace our roots back to the early part of the nineteenth century, when institutions were established to deliver skills and education for local people, improving livelihoods and the economy. Today, we remain at the heart of this great global city, continuing to play our part in its community and economy by empowering and enriching our students, colleagues and our wider community.

The opportunity.

Equality, diversity and inclusion are key priorities for our staff and student communities, as well as the communities with which we engage. The value and importance of the EDI agenda to the achievement of our shared ambitions has been highlighted through recent work we have undertaken with staff and students to develop our E&D objectives 2021-2025 and to review our position and approaches against the frameworks provided by national equality charters. It is also reflected through emerging work to support the delivery of a new University strategy.

To drive this agenda forward we have created the new post of Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Reporting to the Chief People Officer, they will provide senior, expertise-led EDI leadership, supporting the development of an inclusive culture for staff and students. As a senior member of the Professional Services Directorate team, they will play a significant role in working with and supporting faculties and professional services to develop an inclusive culture, to facilitate social mobility and to address awarding gaps.

Our successful candidate will be a thought leader and strategist with the leadership capability to challenge assumptions and translate our strategy into a positive impact on equality, diversity, and inclusion.

Our commitment is for EDI to become mainstream in our thinking and ways of working.
