Job description

Achieving equality, diversity and inclusion is fundamental to the success of the University of Sussex.

You will have a proven track record in planning and organising work to deliver key deliverables to time and quality through collaboration with a cross-functional team. A sound knowledge of equality, diversity and inclusion law and best practice is essential.

The University of Sussex values the diversity of its staff and students and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
