£53,550 - £55,157

Our Head of Engagement will provide strategic leadership of our work to build the Runnymede Trust’s community engagement activities.  At its core, the aspiration for our engagement function is to ensure our work is relevant, active and supportive of those communities that we work with, and on behalf of. We are committed to ensuring that our work is rooted in the lived experiences of the UK’s diverse minority ethnic communities, and that we  build and sustain reciprocal relationships within these communities so that they both benefit from our work and can help shape future priorities.

You will be responsible for ensuring the effective and efficient management of Runnymede’s community engagement strand, working alongside our research, policy and communications functions. This is an essential and growing part of our work that expands opportunities for participatory and community-engagement driven research in collaboration with organisations external to Runnymede, and spread across the different regions.

Thoughtful and careful relationship management and stakeholder engagement are critical to this role, as you develop our relationships with individuals, organisations and academics. You will be skilled in working in collaboration and mobilising others to engage with Runnymede’s projects and campaigns and will possess political sensitivity and awareness. You will have a deep understanding of intersectionality between racism and other forms of marginalisation and exclusion, and demonstrable commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion.
