The University of Bath’s ‘NeverOK’ anti-harassment project is seeking to appoint a hardworking, skilled and experienced professional to lead on, and expand, the work of the project. 

You will be encouraged and expected to take a lead on planning, coordinating, implementing and evaluating campaigns and training that deliver cultural change aimed at tackling:

  • Sexual harassment and assault, racism, homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, ableism and religiously motivated hate crimes
  • Online harassment and hate crimes

The focus of the role will be on changing cultures that can lead to discrimination, harassment and violence: reducing incidents whilst creating a sense of belonging to improve wellbeing. 

To be considered for this position you will demonstrate a track record of delivering a range of complex projects and tasks to tight deadlines as well as managing successful campaigns involving multiple stakeholders. You will have experience of developing and implementing effective campaigns and embedding training within an organisation that led to effective cultural change.

You will also have excellent interpersonal skills; the ability to influence colleagues at all levels and good written and verbal communication skills.  You will also have experience working within an anti-harassment or equality diversity and inclusion or relevant charity sector role. A detailed understanding of Student life and the HE context more broadly is desirable but not essential.

This is a continuing, part-time (0.6 FTE) role to start as soon as possible. 

If you would like an informal conversation about the post, please contact Rose Stephenson (r.stephenson@bath.ac.uk).

We value, promote and celebrate inclusion, challenging discrimination and putting equality, diversity and belonging at the heart of everything we do. We aim to be an inclusive university, where difference is celebrated, respected and encouraged. We truly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and backgrounds will lead to a better environment for our employees and students, so we encourage applications from all genders, backgrounds, and communities, particularly from under-represented groups such as Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled people, and value the positive impact that will have on our teams.

We have made a positive commitment towards gender equality and intersectionality receiving a Bronze Athena SWAN award, and we are actively working towards a Silver award. We are a family-friendly University, with an increasingly agile workforce, we are open to flexible working arrangements. We’re also proud to be a disability confident employer and are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments you may require.
