The Opportunity

We seek a full-time Equity and Inclusion Adviser - a new role in our growing Equity and Inclusion team. This is your chance to make our new institutional Equity and Inclusion Strategy 2024-2027 a vibrant reality and support this exciting early stage of building a truly inclusive learning environment for all. This role is both hands-on and strategic. You will get to be creative and contribute ideas towards the big picture, while also doing meaningful work on the ground.

You will design and lead bespoke staff training sessions and workshops, create and run events and connect with people across the university and in the local community. This includes working with and supporting our staff inclusion networks (independent staff groups that offer support and social events to members and advise the University on inclusive approaches). These currently include Staff Parents & Carers Network, CCCQ (LGBTQIA+ Staff Network), Global Majority Staff Network, Women’s Research Network, Disabled Staff Network, Women’s Network, ‘We Need to Talk about Class’ staff network, and the Neurodiversity network. You can read more about them here: https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/about-us/social-and-environmental-responsibilities/equality-diversity-and-inclusion/equality-networks

Who are we looking for?

As you will be leading and facilitating workshops and training, you’ll need the confidence to stand up in front of a room. Experience of giving presentations and of leading training online and in-person is therefore important. Experience of project management or event management would be valuable too. Evaluation skills are also important so that we can report on the impact of our initiatives to the wider community and evolve our approach proactively. We also need a great communicator. On any day, the Equity and Inclusion Advisor might talk with senior university leaders, academics, professional services staff, students and people in the local community.

This means the ability to build friendly relationships; working with integrity and supporting others is key and strong communication skills are essential. We welcome someone with ideas, creativity, and a collaborative approach, so that when you are creating events (for example celebrating Black History or LGBTQIA+ History across the University), you approach it in an engaging way, working with others and thinking about what difference the event is wanting to make for the community. We also need a team player who will support their immediate colleagues, who is proactive, project-disciplined, a solution-finder and importantly a critical friend, – your voice and opinions will be heard.

Finally, it would be great if you have worked in equity and inclusion before, but what matters most is that you align with our values and care about the work we do. Broad knowledge of diversity and inclusion issues would be a real strength, however a deep-rooted passion to help others, plus a drive to amplify the voices of underrepresented and hidden communities via championing diversity is a must.
