Fancy a well-paid equalities job on the 2012 Games project? There is no need to fight over it, as the Olympic Delivery Authority is advertising for six posts.
The Olympic Delivery Authority website contains details of all the senior roles ensuring staff diversity – each reported to be worth £100,000 per year.
You could apply for a job as either equalities and inclusion manager, or head of equalities and inclusion at the Olympic Delivery Authority, or you could be head of diversity and inclusion at the London 2012 Organising Committee in the same East London building.
Alternatively, you could apply to be either deputy head of equality and inclusion or equality and inclusion manager at CLM, the consortium that won the delivery partnership contract for the games.
There is also a role for an equalities inclusion monitoring and research manager – and reports suggest more diversity positions could follow.
The Olympic Delivery Authority defended the multitude of posts advertised.
“London’s diversity was an important factor in helping win the bid,” said a spokeswoman. “This small number of posts will help ensure we maximise the many job opportunities and skills for London’s diverse communities. Salaries for the new roles will be dependent on experience.”
