Are you an experienced Diversity & Inclusion specialist with a strong track record of delivery within large scale complex environments? Do you have the experience to drive the Diversity & Inclusion agenda of a large scale UK business? If so, then we have a fabulous opportunity for you!

Our confidential client is a well-known household name and a leader in its sector. They are a complex matrixed business of significant scale. We are working with them to recruit a Diversity & Inclusion specialist to champion the D&I agenda, and drive the business' ambition to create an inclusive work environment.

The challenge is not just to support the development of a world-class diversity and inclusion strategy in collaboration with the business at all levels, it is focused on the implementation and delivery of key activity and projects, facing off to multiple level stakeholders through the relevant workforce channels. The role sets the diversity metrics at a senior level in the business, ensuring they encourage the building of a diverse workforce and celebrating the inclusivity of all.

Externally to the business, the role will benchmark and collaborate with other organisations and diversity bodies to enable this business to become recognised as an employer champion in diversity and inclusion. This includes accreditations and representation at national forums.

The ideal candidate will have a track record of developing first class diversity and inclusion functions within large scale environments possibly as a specialism within a wider Generalist or Business Partnering role. They will have experience of developing and embedding a strategic commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, and experience of undertaking equality impact assessments/equality analysis.

What will the organisation offer in return?

The opportunity to genuinely be part of a great British success story, at the very sharp end of bringing this great brand into a new era. This is a fabulous opportunity to add real depth to your CV within a highly diverse and unique brand.
