Equal Opportunities Jobs/Diversity Officer Jobs

Promotion of equality and diversity as part of the culture of an organisation is an aspect of the work of all human resources staff. In some organisations, however, the equal opportunities jobs policy is co-ordinated by an experienced personnel manager as an additional responsibility. Large companies may employ an equal opportunities manager who works solely in this area.

Broadly speaking equal opportunities jobs are responsible for developing, producing and monitoring an employer's diversity & equal opportunities policies and ensuring that statutory obligations are met in this area.  The work will include developing the organisation's equal opportunities policy and practice in the light of legislative change and best practice; reviewing or implementing equal opportunities jobs monitor schemes; advising on issues of recruitment, retention and staff development in relation to best practice and legislation and keeping up to date with current legislation.

Duties of Equal Opportunities and Diversity Officer roles:

Additional duties for equal opportunities jobs include liaising with a wide range of organisations in areas such as race relations, disability and gender; identifying equality issues in the work place and, in conjunction with appropriate staff, developing policies and practices to counter discrimination; gaining and applying knowledge of how to obtain practical assistance, such as grants for special equipment and to advise mangers and staff on all aspects of equality and diversity in staffing and service delivery issues.

Contributing to raising the profile of policies such as the Equal Opportunities Policy and Bullying and Harassment in and around the Workplace will be required as well as advising on investigations involving complaints of discrimination as required.
