Your role in our journey

 

As the Equality and Inclusion Officer, you will support the organisation to deliver work in a way that is inclusive and equitable for people from all backgrounds. You will work as part of a small team who has responsibility for ensuring compliance with our equality duty obligations. You will successfully help directorates to ensure their service delivery positively contributes to the advancement of equality and good relations, and does not affect different groups negatively. This role also gives you the opportunity to support delivery of external diversity festivals.

You will be able to match your passion and commitment for equality and diversity with the ability to engage, consult and work collaboratively with equality. It is your flair for communicating, working within a team and building working partnerships that really sets you apart. You are comfortable and experienced with the ability to work at senior level, with partners and with diverse members of the community. It is essential that you have experience undertaking equality impact assessments.

Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent service, and taking pride in what we do. As part of our team, you can be sure we’ll do all we can to support you in being truly excellent. You see, we prioritise learning and enabling you to achieve your potential. So we’ve created a development process that lets you grow in the way that suits you - whether that’s training to be a leader, or learning flexibly online.
