Vacancy - Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Lead

We are recruiting an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Lead.

To further strengthen our commitment to Equality, Inclusion, and Diversity (EID), and help us deliver on one of the most pressing issues currently facing the business and grassroots sports today, we are seeking an experienced and passionate individual to join our team in a newly formed role as Equality, Inclusion, and Diversity Lead.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone to help drive forward our commitment to embedding EDI in our internal culture, and using our platform and sphere of influence, to effect change in the communities that we serve. As an active and collaborative member of the Senior Management Team (SMT) you will ensure departmental needs are achieved, prioritised, and fully integrated within the overarching strategic plan as well as managing, developing, and supporting the network of stakeholder groups (consultation and strategic) and key professional relationships across the county to provide a voice for protected characteristics/ historically underrepresented communities.

You will be the focal point of all EDI work, providing strategic advice to the Board, leading, and influencing the wider executive operational team and ensuring effective implementation of actions detailed in EDI focused Action Plans (West Riding FA Race Equality Plan, FA Equality Action Plan, Disability Football Action Plan) and future iterations thereof.

The role will report to Chief Executive Officer. The ability to lead and influence across the organisation and within the voluntary sector will be critical to success.

Deadline for applications is 12 noon on Tuesday 10th October 2023.
