Equity and Inclusion Lead Any RCN Office with hybrid working, 17.5 hours per week, Permanent Salary range per annum £47,745 - £53,934

  • pro-rata, plus London weighting (if applicable) There is more to the RCN than you might think. We're a trade union with a membership of over half a million nurses, midwives, nursing support workers and students. We support their practice, represent them, lobby on their behalf, and develop them. We exist to make a positive difference - to the working lives of our members and ultimately to standards in patient care. Our employees are drawn from many walks of life - we are nurses, marketers and communicators, administrators, IT professionals, policy and finance experts, lawyers… together we are so much more. We couldn't do what we do without our people. We're accredited with Investors in People Silver Standard. Our people are our greatest asset, and we want people who can contribute to our purpose in line with our values. As an Equity and Inclusion lead,

  • you'll use your positive attitude, your knowledge of equity, diversity, inclusion and human rights and your ability to embed and implement our equity and inclusion strategy across the RCN Group. It's a job full of possibilities as you could get involved in anything from supporting directorates and teams to fully understand and implement their responsibilities to organising impactful learning and development on EDI issues. We'll look to you to support the development of our member networks too. Every day will be filled with possibilities as you find new ways to manage and support the development of your team. Taking care of our members will be your primary role, but you'll also see the possibilities that new members can bring. A key part of what you do will be to suggest innovative approaches to grow our membership.
    The person, it's unlikely you will work from home for all of your working time. Equally no one is expected to work solely in the office unless your role requires it. You can find out more by having a discussion with the recruiting manager.

    You'll need current, indepth and specialist knowledge of equity, diversity and inclusion and its application in the workspace. Your organisational and collaborative skills along with the ability to provide practical support to others will be essential in building strong professional relationships. To succeed at the Royal College of Nursing all you need to do is think bigger, better and brighter. And with an attitude like that, anything's possible. What we offer you We expect you to look after the directorates and teams you support using your knowledge, skills and working to your strengths. We expect you to be rewarded for it. We offer an impressive range of benefits, a broad range of learning development opportunities and an award-winning health and wellbeing programme. We offer annual leave up to 32 days plus bank holidays and three additional days for the Christmas break plus generous maternity, adoption, paternity, and shared parental leave packages.
  • We offer

    a competitive pay structure with annual pay progression until you reach the top of the salary scale. We normally offer new employees the first point of the salary range, although you may be able to negotiate a higher starting salary depending on your skills, experience and current salary. What we deliver for our members is wide and varied so when it comes to how we work one size doesn't fit all. We also know that to empower our people to do their best work, they must be able to balance the demands of work and home. We are a diverse organisation and understand everyone has different needs and many of our employees enjoy flexible working enabling them to deliver results whilst having a good work life balance. Departments and directorates have their own hybrid ways of working which put the needs of the service they deliver - whether that's to members or to colleagues - at their heart, in alignment with our hybrid working core principles.
