You will share relevant external guidance and information, promote links to training opportunities and identify and share good practice from other sources;

You’ll collate staff, student and survey data, undertake initial analysis and troubleshoot any issues.  You will create and deliver the staff survey and manipulate internal confidential/sensitive data sets to identify trends and monitor impact;

We want to enhance communications about all the large and small EDI initiatives taking place across the Faculty and beyond, so you’ll be involved in redesigning and maintaining our presence across Sharepoint, MS Teams and the webpages;
