New Job Alert: Culture & Inclusion Director
We believe that in order for organisations to effectively and authentically chart an ED&I path, they must start on the ‘inside’, working on their cultures and working practices to become places where diversity can thrive. Come and join one of Campaign's Best Places to Work & one of the most inspiring workplaces in EMEA.
The Culture & Inclusion Director will take ownership of client engagements that sit within the ‘inside’ part of our inside out inclusion model, working with a small team of Consultants to design and deliver innovative and best practice solutions that help organisations to embed ED&I.
This will include drawing from an Unmistakable suite of products and services as well as innovating where needed to develop scalable services.
The current Inclusive Cultures services include:
Leadership & Strategy - working with leaders and People/ HR teams to create business relevant ED&I strategies
Learning & Unlearning - designing and implementing training solutions to deliver transformative and educational learning experiences
People & Culture - interrogating the employee lifecycle and designing inclusive experiences for colleagues from attraction to exit
Data & Measurement - designing and delivering colleague listening tools to generate organisational ED&I insights
The culture & inclusion director reports into the managing director of The Unmistakables, working together to fulfil our financial goals and meet our business strategy. The role is one of continual growth and progression: as a growing business all senior team members are currently very much ‘in the work’ and this role is as ‘hands on’ as it is strategic.
