We are advertising an excellent opportunity for an NFCC/FRS colleague to step into a national leadership role and support NFCC and FRS colleagues.

This is an exciting opportunity, as the landscape of EDI has never been so prevalent and the need for sector led improvement so necessary.

This work will sit under the NFCC People Culture and Leadership Hub. You can find out more here

The role will consist of supporting the delivery of the EDI work which is driven by the People Culture and Leadership plan. This work is key to supporting services to deliver the culture improvements with toolkits, products and good practice identified across the sector.

The role will help to drive forward the good practice and identify the good work the sector is undertaking to deliver change and positive outcomes for our people and our communities.
