The Higher Education Sector is going through a period of unprecedented change. The COVID 19 Pandemic has had a significant impact on the lives and professional activities of our colleagues and students resulting in a number of Equality and Inclusion challenges. The Events of summer 2020 have highlighted the need to address the issues of race and representation with the institution and wider community.
Significant changes to the funding regime along with the introduction of key information metrics across all aspects of the Sector’s performance, are likely to have fundamental and lasting changes to the HE sector as a whole. At the same time Lincoln is an ambitious University enjoying a meteoric rise in the league tables since its establishment in 2001.
The Equalities Manager will be key to enabling the continued advancement of our equalities work, by directly supporting the delivery of projects e.g. Race Equality Charter and other pieces of work that stretch across our staff and student community.
This is a varied and challenging role supporting the University to meet its Key Performance Indicators in relation to equalities and inclusion under our Institution’s strategic plan. The post-holder will help us to advance further how we engage our staff and students in increasingly contributing to the formation and shape of our inclusive culture as an institution.
Reporting to the Head of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI), the role will be key to enabling the continued advancement of our equalities work, by directly supporting the delivery of projects e.g. Race Equality Charter and other pieces of work that stretch across our staff and student community.
Our One Community Values define our One Community ethos and are a framework to ensure that respectful and inclusive behaviours are at the heart of all we do – for each other, our partners and our customers (internally and externally) both in our thoughts and our actions.
The University positively encourages applications and the opportunity to employ people from underrepresented groups inclusive of Black and Ethnic Minority candidates, candidates of all gender identities and expressions, candidates from the LGBT+ community and those that practise different faiths and beliefs to enhance our One Community where we strive to be kind, patient, and supportive of each other.
