The Role:

Are you an HR or L&OD professional who would like to specialise in ED&I? Do you have experience in ED&I and community engagement?

This is an exciting opportunity to specialise in ED&I in a fun, forward-thinking Fire and Rescue Service. If you like every day being different and want to work with our dynamic front line colleagues, support teams and the community then this role would be great for you! There are so many opportunities to help us build on our great culture and have some adventures along the way, working for a Service that’s truly lives its values of welcome, dignity and respect.

You will play a key role in developing colleagues within the Service to have great inclusive conversations and bring our values and behaviours to life.  Leading ED&I focused development, networks, working groups, compliance, events and community engagement, you will work with both operational and support colleagues as well as our community, building those relationships to have open and honest conversations on a variety of topics and building the Service’s knowledge and understanding of all things ED&I.

You will be a people person who, with your open and honest approach, will thrive on spending time with both our operational and non-operational colleagues, as well as the wider community, at our many different locations throughout Cambridgeshire.  Your ability to build on these relationships will allow you to really understand the Service and how best to tailor our ED&I offering.

If you do not fully meet the requirements but believe that you can clearly demonstrate in other ways the range of valuable skills, experience and knowledge recognised as relevant and important to this role, we would welcome hearing from you.
