Diversity and Inclusion Specialists

Greater London, United Kingdom, £38,250 - £45,000 per year, (remote working until June 2021) , Permanent

Save the Children


Do you want to play a key role in creating positive change across Save the Children and the lives of children we fight for by supporting the implementation of our diversity and inclusion agenda?

If you do, come and join us as a Diversity and Inclusion Specialist, an exciting role which will work across the organisation supporting the embedding of our new diversity & inclusion strategy.

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) sits at the heart of who we are and who we aspire to be. Our approach to diversity and inclusion is connected to the way we work with children, encompassing respect, fairness, and equality. We recognise that acting on these values requires a willingness to challenge all forms of discrimination, an ability to listen deeply to others’ lived experiences and move decisively to action that will create positive change.

We know we still have a long way to go – but we are absolutely committed to getting there and doing it well. Getting this right is a condition for doing the best we can for children.  

Our ambition is to be the best we can, making meaningful changes within our organisation and influencing the D&I agenda across the charity sector.   There is a lot to do, we have a newly recruited Director of Diversity & inclusion, a committed CEO and Leadership Team and engaged organisation to work with in making this a reality. As we've just started, we're looking for a knowledgeable, passionate Diversity & Inclusion Specialist – which we hope will be you.

In this role you will support the Director of Diversity & Inclusion on the implementation of our D&I strategy (co-created with staff) and ensuring it remains relevant and fit for purpose.  You will be part of a newly created D & I team with an exciting agenda of work primarily focusing on building an inclusive and equitable workplace and tackling underrepresentation of marginalised groups – building an equitable workplace.

You'll need the ability to work through diversity & inclusion issues, scoping, leading and collaborating with key colleagues around the organisation. Using specialist D & I knowledge and experience, coaching and advising colleagues on D & I best practice will be key along with leading on specialist diversity programmes.

Working with key stakeholders you will help to build organisational culture by increasing understanding of conscious and unconscious bias, discrimination and equality around all aspects of diversity, access and inclusion.  You will need to have significant experience of developing, managing and evaluating equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives. 

At Save the Children we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children in our work. We will do everything possible to ensure that only those who are suitable to work with children are recruited to work for us. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.

If you share our belief in the power of children, join the fight. It takes relentless determination, creativity and a real commitment to real change. Because every child should be able to make their mark on their world, and help to build a better future. We look forward to hearing from you.

Closing date: 18th February 2021.
