Contract Type: Permanent
Closing Date: 29 October 2021
Salary: Competitive salary + excellent benefits
Are you passionate about inclusion and diversity? Do you want to impact the lives of millions of people by supporting the food and consumer goods industry to create inclusive cultures? We’re creating a new role to lead our inclusion and diversity programmes.
Our People programmes deliver social impact by supporting the food and consumer goods industry to foster a productive and inclusive workforce. We develop and run industry-wide programmes which help to attract and develop great people and create inclusive workplace cultures where everyone can thrive.
We are looking for someone to own and significantly scale-up our inclusion and diversity workstream, that supports everyone, from senior leaders to Line Managers and HR teams, to lead change.
Coming into this role you’re first step will be to accelerate our existing mentoring programme working closely with a wide range of industry stakeholders. After that, you'll take a strategic and creative approach, working with external stakeholders, to explore how IGD can best support our industry to create inclusive cultures where everyone can thrive.
You’ll work as part of our Social Impact team and report into the Director of People programmes. This role has no direct reports.
We are operating a hybrid approach to working with a mix of home and office-based working. The exact nature of this can be agreed with the line Manager.
We seek and attract the best people from the widest talent pool and create an environment that supports and includes them. We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their contribution. We therefore welcome applications from diverse candidates. This includes people with disabilities, so please discuss any adjustments that you may require throughout the selection and assessment process.
IGD (Institute of Grocery Distribution) is an organisation of two interconnected communities.
Our Trading company uses in-depth commercial understanding to uncover rich insights and data, leading to action that powers success. We reinvest our profit into delivering Social Impact, through the Charity, aimed at uniting and mobilising our industry around the most crucial issues affecting society and business.
We connect, collaborate and inspire, provoking and leading constructive debate that creates tangible impact. Together we are working to drive change that makes a tangible difference for Society, Business and the Individual.
