Job description

We are seeking an Interim Head of Diversity and Inclusion (maternity cover), Fixed term, starting start of September 2024, up to August 2025. Between full-time and 0.6 FTE part-time available as options.

We are open to applications proposing to hold as a job-share and other flexible working arrangements, so long as we are confident those can deliver the necessary leadership and management responsibilities for the Diversity and Inclusion team and activities.

The role

We are recruiting for an Interim Head of Diversity and Inclusion for a period of up to one year to provide maternity cover. This is an exciting and high-profile role, working externally across the engineering profession and internally across the organisation. As Interim Head of the Diversity and Inclusion, you will lead a team of skilled and dedicated diversity professionals and steer the course of our portfolio of programmes and activities.

You will report to the Executive Director, Programmes, providing oversight and leadership across the whole portfolio of activity. This includes:

  • Our Industry activity supporting the promotion and embedding of inclusive cultures in engineering businesses. These include inclusive engineering leadership programmes, D&I toolkits and resources, inclusive recruitment programmes and more.
  • Education support, including our Higher Education Diversity Impact Programme supporting higher education institutions to support D&I approaches and develop a community of practice to facilitate learning and sharing of ideas across the wider engineering higher education sector.
  • Our diversity and inclusion research programme which provides insightful and rigorous research to identify barriers to achieving our goals and informs actions and recommendations on diversity and inclusion.
  • Our work with professional engineering bodies to embed diversity and inclusion.
  • Our work to embed diversity and inclusion through all Academy external programmes and activities, and working in partnership with internal teams, including supporting our HR team with expert advice, to build and maintain inclusive cultures and embed D&I good practice into Academy operations.

Who are we looking for?

An experienced diversity and inclusion professional with an innovative mindset, strategic thinking skills and well-honed judgement, to help input into delivery of key Academy diversity and inclusion programmes.

As well as having experience working with both internal and external stakeholders and contractors, you will need experience of managing complex, multistakeholder projects and be able to design and implement innovative, impactful diversity and inclusion initiatives. Experience of line management with the ability to provide support and empathy to your direct report(s) while empowering them to maximise their potential is also essential for this role.

Who are we?

Engineering matters. It shapes our everyday lives, from our ability to turn the lights on, have a hot shower and commute into work, to the mobile phones we rely on to keep connected. It also plays a vital role in addressing some of the biggest challenges facing society today, from climate change, to global health pandemics and cyber threats.

The Royal Academy of Engineering is a charity that harnesses the power of engineering to build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy that works for everyone. In collaboration with our Fellows and partners, we’re growing talent and developing skills for the future, driving innovation, and building global partnerships, and influencing policy and engaging the public. Together we’re working to tackle the greatest challenges of our age.

With a diverse workforce and an inclusive and supportive culture, we look to attract candidates from wide and different backgrounds who have a passion for the role engineering plays in society. Our aim is to make the Academy the best place to work for the staff we have and those we seek to attract.

Why work for the Royal Academy of Engineering?

We’re looking for people who are driven to make the world a better place. If you’re passionate about what you do and want to work collaboratively with talented colleagues to make change happen now and for future generations, we want you to get in touch.

This is the perfect time to join us. We have a dynamic, visionary CEO, a strong leadership team and an ambitious and exciting strategy. The value we bring as experts in our field and change agents is highly recognised and makes the Academy a motivating place to be. Our work today builds on a long, proud history with a focused and ambitious future which we’d love you to be part of.

We are looking for talented people who want to make a difference, to join our team – is this you?
