A little bit about the role

Our Diversity and Inclusion Project Officer will work collaboratively across Council to lead the successful delivery of our Workforce Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and relevant people projects/actions emanating out of the Local Government Act 2020 and Gender Equality Act 2020. 

In this role, you will bring your expertise in diversity, equality and inclusion to review, develop and implement a number of key actions that will result in positive change, capability uplift and the involvement of all employees in supporting a workplace where everyone feels safe, connected and included.

You will leverage your external D&I networks to ensure a best practice approach is applied and utilise our internal communication channels to engage and inform our employees on how we are tracking. You love a good project plan and ensure you have captured all commitments and timeframes in line with our organisational priorities. Being an expert in this space you will consider policies, procedures and projects through a D&I lens and proactively reach out to teams where you think you could add value.

You will develop and present regular progress reporting to relevant stakeholders and highlight any gaps in line with our strategy or legislative requirements. Working within our People, Culture and Development team, you will get involved in broader discussions and may use your project management expertise in assisting other projects outside of the D&I portfolio.

You will bring your excellent communication and collaboration skills with the demonstrated ability to discuss and partner with others to influence change. You have a flexible, can-do attitude that can deliver both strategic and practical outcomes and have demonstrated experience in creating positive change in this space.

This is an exciting opportunity to combine your project management experience with your passion for all things diversity, equality and inclusion.
