Do you believe in ensuring everybody has an equal opportunity, and is not treated differently or discriminated against because of their ethnicity? Can you develop and maintain effective working relationships with a wide range of people? Are you able to analyse and present data clearly and meaningfully? If so, we have an exciting career opportunity for you.


We are currently seeking to appoint an experienced and motivated Coordinator to support the College's Assistant Provost (Equality, Diversity & Inclusion).

Duties and responsibilities

You will coordinate the planning and delivery of Imperial College’s application for the Race Equality Charter (REC) award and assist with implementation of the action plan that will follow a successful application.

This career opportunity promises to be rewarding and will use to the maximum your experience gained in roles such as an HR Assistant, HR/HE Administrator, Diversity & Inclusion Coordinator, or similar.

Essential requirements

In order to hit the ground running, you will have:

  • Previous experience within an HR or HE environment.
  • An understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion legislation.
  • A high level of computer literacy and experience of working with databases and analysing data.
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to deal effectively with staff at all levels.
  • A high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • Proven ability to learn new skills on the job and to use your initiative
  • The ability to handle highly confidential information with tact and discretion.

If you are interested in pursuing further, please complete and submit your application online via our website at http://www.imperial.ac.uk/jobs/ quoting reference number PRO00561.

Please note that all applications must be completed on the official application form. CVs will not be considered.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published. For more information, see https://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-evaluation/

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research
