scottishathletics is fully committed to equality and ensuring that athletics is accessible to all including all characteristics held and protected by the Equality Act 2010.
And, as part of our ongoing work to uphold the principles and values of equality across our sport, we are currently seeking to establish an Equality and Diversity Advisory Group.
This will help assist us in leading the way. As part of this process, we are seeking to recruit three members who are committed and passionate about equality from a variety of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives, to form this Equality and Diversity Advisory Group.
The Group’s remit is to provide advice and guidance on all equality matters, ensuring practical, strategic and operational support is sustained for the development and delivery of our Equality Action plan, in addition to supporting our Staff Equality Working Group and Board Members in relation to equality and diversity.
As a member of the Equality and Diversity Advisory Group, the successful candidates will offer advice on all matters of equality, and specifically on one or more of the UK Equality Act 2010 protected characteristics.
We are seeking expert candidates with significant knowledge or experience operating at a strategic level in either the private, public or third sectors; further information can be found within the Member Role profiles.
It is envisaged an Equality and Diversity Advisory Group member will serve for an initial period of two years. Meetings will take place quarterly at the Scottish Athletics offices, Caledonia House, South Gyle, Edinburgh EH12 9DQ, either during office hours or in the evenings.
There will also be a requirement for occasional additional visits, events and meetings.
