Why

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team supports employers to build inclusive practise into every area of their business and feel more confident in hiring disabled employees and supporting them in the workplace.

Employers will buy into into the concept of EDI, but first they need to buy into you. A skilled relationship builder, your clear communication and confidence in the subject area will instil trust on the part of the employer, giving them the confidence to invest in what you are selling.

Our culture is autonomous so that means we will trust you to develop relationships with employers, prioritising those with the potential to generate the most return. You will be required to travel to meet employers at the time/place that works for them and their business, so we need you to manage your workload and your time well.

  • Experience of building employer relationships.
  • Basic data analysis skills to interpret and communicate relevant insights related to EDI and disability inclusion.
  • Any relevant certifications or completed courses in EDI, disability inclusion, or related fields would be a bonus.
  • Understanding of barriers people with disabilities face when looking for work and when in employment.
  • Experience working in a performance focussed team
  • Understanding of relevant policy and legislation
