Full-Time Equalities Director

Matthew Tynan – Posted by Matthew Tynan London, England, United Kingdom

Job Description

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) have always been at the forefront of everything we do here at Bruin, and we have always been proud to partner with like-minded businesses. As a result, I am particularly pleased to come to market in partnership with the City of London Corporation in their search for a new Equalities Director.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a unique organisation delivering for all those who live, work, learn and explore in and around everything the City of London has to offer locally, nationally, and globally. The City of London Corporation is constantly striving to develop its Equality, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EEDI) offering and aims to become an exemplar for best practice in this area. This post and the portfolio it leads have been recently strengthened evidencing the City Corporation’s ongoing commitment to this important agenda.

Working with their forward-thinking Chief Strategy Officer, you will be an integral part of this story as strategic lead for all areas of EEDI across City of London Corporation. To quote Dionne Corradine, Chief Strategy Officer: “Getting EEDI ‘right’ is not optional; it is essential to successful delivery for the diverse communities we serve (internally and externally), the partners we engage with and through, and all those impacted directly and indirectly by the work we do.”


As Equalities Director, you will play a key role in delivering the City Corporation’s ‘fantastic five years’ programme of activity. You will engage with internal and external colleagues, members, and stakeholders, you will be a people manager and set direction for the EEDI team, helping to create an inclusive, supportive City Corporation where everyone thrives. These aims are highlighted in their newly launched Corporate Plan 2024-2029 and People Strategy 2024-2029. Joining the City Corporation at this stage, you’ll have the chance to positively contribute to and shape the success of these far-reaching plans, guiding the organisation in its EEDI journey and bringing this to life by embedding EEDI within everything City Corporation does.

The successful candidate will lead in developing and maintaining EEDI policies, procedures, and strategies for City of London Corporation, ensuring accountability for EEDI governance and frameworks. The ability to identify and work with a wide variety of stakeholders, building positive and productive relationships, is key to the success of this role, along with the skills to drive forward transformational change in the EEDI space.

As part of the Chief Strategy Officer’s wider Corporate Strategy and Performance Senior Leadership Team, you will be connected to and influence cross-cutting strategic development across the City Corporation – further reinforcing the importance of EEDI as an essential enabler in delivering success. You will champion, embed, and signpost EEDI initiatives. This is a lived ethos rather than a corporate wish list, and a fantastic opportunity to build a function that is seen as a real value add with an impact far beyond the employee base of City Corporation.

As a Senior Leader within City Corporation, this role is as much about being a strategic leader and managing change through leadership, risk mitigation, and engagement with all City Corporation’s stakeholders, internal and external.

We are looking for someone with the passion and expertise to bring this role to life. A leader, a mentor who is brave and challenges the status quo. This is about doing the right thing, not the easy thing. No EEDI journey is straight forward, however, with an organisation as aligned as the City of London Corporation and with you, as their strategic Equalities Director, this will be one journey you won’t want to miss!

If this looks like the perfect role for you, do not hesitate to apply!
