Stonewall exists to bring about equality and acceptance for LGBT+ people in the UK and worldwide. Our vision is a world where everyone, everywhere is free to be themselves. We believe we're stronger united and we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better. We have laid deep foundations across Britain - in some of our greatest institutions - so our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential. We’re here to support those who can’t yet be themselves.
But our work is not finished yet. Not until everyone feels free to be who they are, wherever they are.
With a new strategy and brand launching this year, this is a very exciting time to join us as we undertake an ambitious work programme with a new vision, mission and new business priorities. Our aim is to deepen our work with different communities internationally, nationally, regionally and locally to achieve real change in the daily lives of lesbian, gay, bi and trans people.
The Diversity Champions programme, that is now in its twentieth year of operation, is the leading employers' programme for ensuring all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace. We work with over 850 UK and UK-based multinational organisations, all of whom share our core belief in the power of a workplace that is truly equal. Through them we've helped create inclusive and accepting environments for almost a quarter of the UK workforce. Our annual Workplace Equality Index is an important mechanism for change in improving practice and increasing the profile of effective LGBT+ inclusion, and receives significant positive media attention each year increasing the societal impact of our work.
Our Workplace team offers direct support to organisations in the private, public and third sector on how to build a truly inclusive workplace, using resources, webinars, case studies and creating opportunities to share best practice. We give guidance on the creation of effective LGBT+ staff networks, review HR and organisational policies to ensure that they are LGBT+ inclusive and offer support with data monitoring to support employers in identifying trends in recruitment, pay grade and staff satisfaction.
The Associate Director, Workplace Client Relationships will work with institutions to create inclusive cultures, and equip institutions as advocates and agents of positive change, whilst delivering income to support our vision.
We are looking for a commercially minded and creative leader, with a demonstrable track record of delivering income growth and leading teams in a values-based environment to deliver our Diversity Champions and Work Place Equality Index. You will have experience working in a complex environment with multiple stakeholders, using high-quality and proactive approaches, both on-line and off-line. You will be an experienced and highly inclusive leader and manager, with experience of coaching, supporting change and developing staff to reach their full potential. Crucially, you will proactively drive forward Stonewall’s race equity and trans inclusion journey as we continue to embrace an intersectional approach.
At Stonewall we want you to feel involved in all aspects of our work and to have amazing opportunities during your time with us. Everyone is accepted for who they are, regardless of age, disability, gender identity, marital status, race, faith or belief, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, and whether you’re pregnant or on family leave. In line with our commitments to race equity and trans inclusion, we are particularly seeking applications from trans people and/or People of Colour/BAME people. We have a number of staff network groups which provide peer support and safe spaces for staff who hold these and other identities.
Deadline for applications: Monday 1 March 2021 5pm
If you have a disability and would prefer to apply in a different format or would like us to make reasonable adjustments to enable you to apply or attend any interview, please let us know.
