Inclusion Matters Web Development Officer
Do you have excellent knowledge of digital learning platforms and experience in management of a website and online tools that support the engagement of colleagues? Are you driven to contribute to a collaborative project supporting equality, diversity and inclusion?
You will support the delivery of the ‘Inclusion Matters’ project, working collaboratively with the Inclusion Matters Project Officer and a team of senior academic and professional services colleagues at the University of Leeds. ‘Inclusion Matters’ is a nine university and six industry partner consortium funded by the Engineering, Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC). This two-year project, led by Durham University, commenced in January 2019 and aims to shape an inclusive culture in the engineering and physical sciences (EPS) community in the North of England to drive and sustain greater equality for early career staff from traditionally under-represented EPS groups.
The University of Leeds is an active partner in this project, leading on two work-streams:
- shared characteristic mentoring across the consortium to develop cross institutional opportunities for EPS colleagues at an early stage of their career; and
- developing and maintaining, in collaboration with the consortium members, an online platform to support the delivery of the project’s mentoring and networking aims.
We are looking for a colleague to support the management and further development of the project website. You will be responsible for the day to day proactive development and administration of our Moodle platform, ensuring all the materials are accessible, accurate, current and meeting the needs of all our partners. This will include managing existing tools which partners have included in the platform, as well as adding new tools (e.g. to increase interactivity).
You will work under the supervision of Professor Vania Dimitrova (academic lead for the workstream delivering the digital platform), and under the direction by the Inclusion Matters Project Officer to support progress and delivery of the project aims in accordance with the project plan.
You will join the Equality and Inclusion team of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, and will work closely with the Inclusion Matters Project Officer (located at Organisational Development & Professional Learning), colleagues from the University of Leeds Equality Policy Unit, the Leeds academic leads for the EPSRC NorthernPower Inclusion Matters Project, and university and industry partners on project.
We expect the digital platform developed in the NorthernPower Inclusion Matters project to ensure the sustainability of the project activities to support under-represented groups in the EPS research community. The platform should play a key role enabling the realisation of the project’s impact to attracting, retaining and growing under-represented groups of research staff in Leeds, North England, and beyond.
