The Equality and Diversity Unit (EDU) is looking for an experienced and passionate Race Equality Advisor to join its friendly team. This role provides an exciting opportunity to help shape the University’s work and accelerate progress on race equality as the Race Equality Task Force nears the conclusion of its work and we prepare to renew our Race Equality Charter award in 2022.

Our advisors have a good grasp of equality legislation and excellent knowledge of EDI good practice. You will use your specialist knowledge to lead the University’s work in relation to the Race Equality Charter, and develop strategies, policies and interventions to advance race equality at Oxford.

Working collaboratively with colleagues from across the University and inspiring and motivating others is essential part of the role and this position would suit a clear, confident communicator with excellent inter-personal skills and the ability to influence and enthuse others at different levels of seniority. You will also have excellent written and analytical skills, be confident working with data and enjoy the challenge of promoting culture change in a complex institution.

Knowledge of issues of religion and belief, and in particular of the ways in which they intersect with ethnicity, would be an advantage.
