A unique opportunity has arisen for a passionate and experienced leader to join The Kirkwood Movement in an exciting new role which will help to shape the future of our charity.

We are seeking an innovative candidate with experience of operating at a senior level to bring their lived experience and perspectives to help us become more diverse and inclusive in everything we do.

The Kirkwood are a movement of people motivated by our shared vision to provide the very best care for the people of Kirklees. Treating those in our care as individuals and aspiring to support their personal needs, wishes and desires is at the very heart of everything we do and we are passionate about delivering positive experiences for our employees, volunteers and supporters too – no matter who they are, where they live or what they believe.

In order to reach more people we need to evolve the way we interact with individuals, groups, local services and partners to change the way we are viewed by our diverse communities and make sure we are here to offer support in the ways that are right for them.

The postholder will provide strong leadership to the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) journey, using their skills, experience and a personal approach to ensure inclusive values and behaviours are adopted across all aspects of the charity, including in policy and practice, through Investors in Diversity (IID) and in every department across the organisation.

The Kirkwood have a strong reputation for our progressive approach and commitment to addressing inequalities that contribute to poor population health outcomes. The successful applicant will play a major role in building on the progress we’ve made and helping us to make sure everyone affected by a life limiting illness in Kirklees has access to the very best care, every step of the way.

We encourage you to get in touch to find out more about how this exciting opportunity can help you to expand your knowledge and skills whilst helping us to reach out to the many diverse communities across Kirklees.

The successful candidate should be representative of our community and be able to apply their lived experience and apply it to help us engage and co-design our services to make sure they are reflective of the diverse communities we support.

Applications from individuals in underrepresented communities are especially welcome as we strive to become more diverse and inclusive in everything we do. Your unique perspective and background could be a valuable asset to our team.

As an employee, you will be offered a range of benefits, including 27 days holiday (pro rata for part time staff), access to our Employee Assistance Programme, high-quality, low-cost meals at our Dalton site and complementary therapies. NHS Pensions are also transferable for those already contributing.

Interview dates are as below,

  • Wednesday 8th May 2024 – Stakeholder Panel
  • Friday 10th May 2024 – Interview

Please note, we reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we receive sufficient applications.
