About the role

We have a new and exciting opportunity to work with us as an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Manager (External) to provide continuity while our EDI Strategy Lead is on maternity leave. Reporting to the Executive Director, Impact and working with key stakeholders and colleagues across the whole organisation, you will help ensure alignment between our external For Everyone Strategic Framework and our new organisational strategy. As a charity for everyone, this framework outlines our approach to embedding equity, diversity and inclusion internally within our organisation and externally in our delivery work.

As the EDI Manager (External) you will be supporting the Senior Leadership Team to deliver core actions from the For Everyone External Action Plan. You will also be responsible for reporting and evaluating progress on the implementation of the For Everyone External Action Plan.

You will be overseeing the consistent implementation of Sustrans Approaches, a new document that sets out the services that Sustrans offers, with a particular focus on inclusive design and delivery. As part of this, you will be providing guidance, training and bespoke support to colleagues, so that they feel confident and competent in inclusive design principles and practice.

Ensuring quality and timely execution, you will be managing specific EDI work projects and change initiatives, as outlined in the External Action Plan and/or Sustrans Approaches. This includes coordinating colleagues across UK-wide teams to share knowledge, resources and good practice on embedding equity, diversity and inclusion across our external projects.

This role will be home-based, with the option of hybrid working. Occasional travel to our hubs across the UK will be required as necessary to undertake projects on behalf of Sustrans.



About you

You should share our passion for making active travel more equitable and inclusive.

You should have previous experience of managing and implementing EDI related initiatives in engagement, infrastructure and/or urban planning projects, including supporting colleagues to embed EDI in their work.

You will be skilled in inclusive design principles in the delivery of engagement, infrastructure and/or urban planning projects, including training others to apply inclusive design principles in project delivery. 

You should have successful project management experience, with excellent time management and organisational skills. You will also be accustomed to multitasking to tight deadlines.

You will demonstrate a strong ability to interpret, analyse and present qualitative and quantitative data and use it to evaluate the impact of projects or initiatives.

As an excellent communicator, you will have the ability to build relationships with ease across a wide range of people.

Sustrans has a long-term commitment to being a charity for everyone - reducing inequality, valuing diversity, enabling inclusion and ensuring all people are treated with dignity and respect. We aim to be a truly inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all parts of the community, in particular from under-represented groups.
