About the Service

At Surrey Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS), we believe it is essential to embed our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion into every aspect of our work and this includes our Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP). This is a dual responsibility applying to both our outward facing, community-focused activities and our internal responsibilities to people and volunteers. Our vision is that everyone representing SFRS will be an ambassador for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI).

About the Role

Our EDI and CRMP Engagement Lead will work with our EDI Partner to build an intelligence-based profile of our communities to provide understanding of the make-up of the communities we serve and use this to inform evidenced based development of the Service’s CRMP.

In this role, you will be responsible for analysing qualitative and quantitative data and providing illustrations and/or reports of this data to inform decision making. You will work closely with all key stakeholders, both internally and externally, to initiate, develop, implement and review initiatives relating to positive action and a cycle of engagement with the community. 

Through facilitating engaging and inclusive workshops and communication sessions for various groups in our community and our colleagues you will support the EDI Partner in achieving the objectives as outlined in our organisational EDI strategy relating to community engagement.

To inform and support the implementation of the Service’s Engagement plan, you will attend community engagement activities at local and national community networks, events and meetings. Additionally, you will support the organisation and delivery of the EDI education, awareness, continuous professional development programmes, and events developed by the EDI Partner.

Reporting into the EDI Partner, you will support this role in meeting their objectives as outlined in the organisational People and EDI strategies. You will also support the work of the CRMP Project team to deliver the engagement activity both internally and externally and help inform the development of the next CRMP. You will be required to build effective working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders across the organisation. 

This role is based at Service Headquarters in Woodhatch, Reigate. There will also be a requirement for you to travel around the county for which a pool car can be provided. There may, on occasion, be times when you are required to work evenings and/or outside of normal working hours to meet the needs of the customer and the organisation.

About You

We are looking for someone who has a passion for EDI and the local community and enjoys building relationships with external parties/stakeholders. Equally, you will also have experience of supporting Equality, Diversity and/or Inclusive practice initiatives, designing and delivering training materials in accordance with this, and communicating these messages to a wide range of audiences.

Experience of collating, accurately analysing and interpreting complex quantitative and qualitative data to identify patterns and trends is a must. The role also requires the ability to encourage and influence others to build trust in order to solicit new ideas and introduce new ways of thinking.

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service strives to be a diverse and inclusive place where we can bring our full self to work whilst being representative of our 1.2 million residents. We particularly encourage applications from underrepresented groups and/or those who have lived experience. Find out more about our EDI commitment and objectives.
