Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Project Officer

Reference number: A4130120

Location: Flexible

We believe that, like nature, our survival depends on diversity. If you believe this too, this could be the role for you.

Nature has no borders and neither do we. We recognise that everyone is individual and different and value what that difference brings to the RSPB. We want to support everyone to unlock their potential and better reflect the communities in which we work.

This is an amazing opportunity for you to make a difference in our high-profile and rapidly evolving work area. You will work in a small, perfectly formed (and geographically dispersed) team made up of an Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Manager and a Project Manager. You will also interact with others at all levels across the whole organisation and with external organisations, to bring about a step change.

Flexible working is part of how we do things. Our team are based in different locations and have different working patterns. That means that you will need to comfortable both in finding your own solutions and regularly using remote technology.

An interest in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is essential. An in-depth subject knowledge is not, but would be useful.

Typical things you might do in this role include:

• Helping us revitalise our Project Board membership and governance structure
• Assisting the Project Manager to produce monthly highlight reports and maintain project documentation
• Directing, supporting and facilitating the expansion of our fantastic network of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Champions
• Compiling content for regular communications to key stakeholders, such as e-newsletter
• Working with the Communications Team and others to develop deliver and promote an inspiring activity and event programme (for example linked to external initiatives such as Black History Month, National Inclusion Week, International Women's Day and LGBT+ Pride)
• Organising and co-ordinate meetings, such as Project Board meetings, Project Team meetings and Champions meetings
• Monitoring and responding to queries received via the project email inbox
• Regularly reviewing and updating project contact lists
• Uploading content onto different platforms such as the intranet and Yammer

Our vision and activities that you will be supporting, including organisational targets are summarised in this position statement.
