I want to welcome you to the University of Dundee and thank you for your interest in the role of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Officer.
This is a great opportunity to work alongside the Head of EDI and team to support delivery of the University’s EDI plans and work with a wide range of colleagues across the University to implement our EDI objectives.
The University of Dundee has a clear mission – to transform lives, locally and globally, by the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. We do this with world-class teaching, pioneering research, and work that has social, cultural and economic impact.
We are home to a community of 17,000 students and over 3000 staff. Around 12,000 are undergraduates with 25% of our students coming from outside the UK. Our 3200 staff come from over 55 different countries and 92% of our staff think that the University is a good place to work.
The diversity of our staff and students helps to make the University of Dundee one of the top universities in the UK. Family-friendly policies, staff support networks for BME, disabled, and LGBT staff, membership of Athena Swan, Race Equality Charter and Stonewall, as well as a full range of disability services, create an enjoyable and inclusive place to work.
The University of Dundee is committed to strongly supporting all in our community, to ensuring an inclusive learning and working environment, and to a fair and more equitable society for all. We have a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination, harassment and bullying.
The University of Dundee is committed to enhancing EDI in all its forms and strongly encourages candidates from under-represented groups to apply for this important position.
Thank you for considering this opportunity and I look forward to receiving your application.
Head of Equality and Diversity
