Our Head of Equality and Inclusion plays a pivotal role in making both our organisation and our city more equitable places.

We are seeking somebody who can bring our new Equality and Inclusion strategy to life; recognising the importance of equality and inclusion in building meaningful relationships, understanding our citizens and making our overall vision for Bristol and its leadership a reality.

You’ll be working as part of a high performing, well respected senior management team in the council’s central Policy, Strategy and Partnerships division, with direct access to the Mayor, Cabinet and other senior decision makers in one of the country’s most innovative, fast-moving and exciting cities.

Leading a central team of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) professionals, you will be at the heart of the Council and empowered to create and embed a stronger approach to EDI; both within the Council and in outward facing ways. You will be a recognised authority on the topic, and will be supported to bring about meaningful change across the organisation, and with our partners.

Join us and you will get more than a challenging and rewarding job; you will enjoy all the benefits of living and working in one of Europe's most vibrant and best-located cities. Bristol frequently tops polls of ‘best places to live’, and you will be an important part of making sure those benefits reach everybody, and making it even better for all.
