Ref: 13386

English Heritage cares for over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places such as Stonehenge, Tintagel Castle, Dover Castle, Hadrian's Wall, Kenwood House, Marble Hill, Battle Abbey and Clifford's Tower. Through these, and through our amazing collection of historic artefacts, we bring the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year.

As Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), you will lead the transformation in culture required to make English Heritage a more relevant and welcoming brand to all.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, you will be a visible leader across the organisation, setting direction and creating opportunities, focusing on business planning, programming, advice, performance and communication. You will develop close relationships with key stakeholders to make the change to becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation. You will also build and manage relationships with external partners, working with and learning lessons from others whilst building our reputation as a committed and concerned conservation charity.

We need someone who has experience of successful leadership of change to improve equality, diversity and inclusion in a large organisation. This person, a strong influencer and leader, must also have a track record of developing and implementing a strategy with demonstrable results, working with others to achieve objectives through their teams.

This is a great opportunity for a passionate and credible champion of equality, diversity and inclusion to play a key leadership role in a well-loved national charity.

If you would welcome an informal conversation about the role, please contact our Head of HR and Volunteering, Andrew Kennedy, on Andrew.Kennedy@english-heritage.org.uk

You'll find it's a workplace like no other - taking you behind the scenes of these extraordinary sites and supporting you to share your ideas, inspire others and make a difference.

By joining us, you'll enjoy the rewards of a great team environment in inspiring locations, helping to make our site a wonderful place to visit. You'll also be joining our charity, which through our 400+ historic monuments, buildings and sites, brings the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year. We offer a competitive benefits package including a generous pension, 25 days leave a year and free entry to all English Heritage properties for you, another adult and up to 6 children (under the age of 19).
