Working as part of the Organisational Development (OD) team in HR, you will collaborate closely with specialists in learning and development, wellbeing and equality to support the development of a cohesive, customer focussed service. You will also work in partnership with the Racial Justice Manager to progress Goldsmiths’ pledge to promoting racial justice.

As the Race Equality Charter (REC) Officer, you will play a key role in supporting Goldsmiths to achieve its aim of embedding race equality into everything that we do.

You will bring great organisational, communication and administrative skills to the team, enabling us to ensure that the REC submission project, and related events and work, are delivered in a way that engages staff and stakeholders from all backgrounds. You will display sensitivity and empathy in the way you work with others, as well as a pro-active approach to problem solving, enabling the team to work in a way that is inclusive and empowering.  

This is a fantastic opportunity for a person interested in developing a career in a field related to race equality and social justice. We are keen to receive applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds who have an awareness and understanding of equality issues.   

We have generous benefits – an agile working environment, 28 days’ annual leave plus 6 paid closure days (4 at Christmas and 2 at Easter) plus all Bank Holidays, great transport links, a defined benefit pension scheme, support for professional development and a broad range of wellbeing initiatives such as staff choir, running club and creative writing classes.
