SOR042 - Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion Lead

The Role

This role will have lead oversight of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB), working cross organisationally to create a dynamic, aspirational, and ambitious DEIB culture both within the SOR / COR and amongst SOR member workplaces. We are creating a culture that reflects the diversity of the world around us and where employees & members have confidence and ability to challenge discrimination and structural barriers to inclusion throughout the profession, in workplaces, education and radiography practice.

Working inter-departmentally, with colleagues, networks and members, this role will develop a long term DEIB strategy that supports our strategy and embeds DEIB into everything we do, with a strong focus on collecting, analysing and using data to inform action plans and measure success.

DEIB is everyone’s responsibility at the SOR / COR, but this role will be the subject matter expert, interpreting DEIB standards, best practice, and legislation. The role will help colleagues, leaders, officers, and members understand their collective and individual responsibilities.

Who we are looking for

This is a pivotal role for the SOR / COR and you will have demonstrable successful experience in the field of equality, diversity and inclusion, particularly within the context of facilitating culture change and organisational development in organisations. In your application, you will be able to demonstrate your experience of championing equality, diversity and inclusion and effective management of projects. Collaborative working skills across organisations with the ability to establish and maintain good working relationships internally and externally, whilst championing EDI is a key requirement.

You will possess an empathetic understanding of issues around discrimination and marginalisation, coupled with a strong working knowledge of relevant legislation, latest reports, and research relevant to the lived experiences of those from marginalised backgrounds or those with protected characteristics.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

We are committed to cultivating an inclusive and diverse workplace as we believe that this fosters creativity and innovation and is representative of the world around us, and everyone is eligible to apply.   

We especially encourage applicants from ethnically diverse and underrepresented backgrounds to apply, reflecting the true diversity of our membership body.

We are a Disability Confident committed organisation dedicated to fostering an inclusive recruitment experience for everyone. If you need assistance with your application, or a reasonable adjustment to the recruitment and selection process – for example, because you are neurodivergent, or have a physical, sensory, cognitive, mental, visible or invisible disability – please let us know, and we will be happy to help.

We encourage candidates to bring diverse perspectives and experiences to the role. Whatever way you like to work, and whatever your background, if you have the skills, experience, talent, and commitment to join our team, we would like to hear from you.
