To be successful in this Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Specialist role, you must have demonstrable and previous global experience in a standalone or senior level, DE&I focused capacity, embedding DE&I as a subject matter expert, within the private sector. The DE&I Specialist will be introducing the DE&I strategy and plans to all locations globally and so international experience is essential.

You must have experience within a varied DE&I capacity covering all areas of DE&I and exposure of doing this for multiple organisations.

The DE&I Advisor will contribute to creating the strategy for the DE&I work but their manager will have final approval.
