We are seeking to appoint an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer jointly across the Oxford Department of International Development and the Department of Politics and International Relations. This is an exciting position which will offer the right candidate the opportunity to shape and lead projects from conception through to final implementation, to fulfil the departments’ Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategies.
The Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Officer will support and work closely with both DPIR’s EDI Academic Lead (EDIL) and ODID’s EDI Committee Chair on a range of projects relating to equality, diversity and inclusion. The role requires a high degree of initiative and independent decision making, including leading projects from conception through to final implementation in-line with the departments’ longer term EDI strategies.
DPIR is planning to apply for an Athena Swan Bronze Award. A major part of the role will be to manage this application process. ODID received its Athena Swan accreditation in October 2020. The post holder will continue the work that has been done on the action plan objectives arising out of Athena Swan accreditation, while looking ahead to the process for renewal of the award. The post holder will also work on complementary initiatives across the department’s teaching and research communities.
To be successful in this role, you will be educated to degree level or equivalent and demonstrate a commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. This includes the capacity to make hypotheses and suggest policy and practice interventions that will have an impact on gender equality, anti-racism and other equality and diversity issues.
You will possess strong organisational and project management skills and be able to work independently and flexibly to achieve objectives and meet deadlines. You will demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and communication skills, including the ability to write concise and clear reports, and give illuminating visual presentations. Sound IT and numeracy skills are essential, as is the ability to propose and carry out quantitative and qualitative research.
Prior knowledge and experience of an academic department is desirable. Knowledge of Athena SWAN and experience of working on equality and diversity issues in the Higher Education sector would be an advantage.
This post is part-time (0.8fte) and fixed-term for two years in the first instance.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement (detailing how your knowledge and experience fit with the role) and details of two referees as part of your online application.
