Freelance opportunity – Equality Diversity and Inclusion Research Assistant

White text reading 'Research Assistant Needed' on brown background with yellow megaphones

The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust is embarking on a piece of research into how heritage organisations are engaging with equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) work. Our research will encompass both external activities (programming and engagement work) and how organisations seek to recruit diverse and representative bodies of people (trustees, staff and volunteers) and to what degree their internal processes enable them to engage in EDI work. 

The research will include desk research (to create a literature review), an online questionnaire, one-to-one online interviews, and focus groups. We will create a report which includes findings, recommendations and examples of good practice to share with the sector.

We wish to recruit a freelance Research Assistant to work on this research project from July until October or November 2021. We expect the commission to total around 64 days, and have a total of £14,400 for this commission (64 days @ £225 per day).

This role could be job-shared between two people who collectively bring the required skills and experience.

One of our organisation’s aims is to challenge the under-representation of people of global majority heritage in academic, cultural and library / archive sectors. People of Black (African and African-Caribbean) heritage are under-represented in our team; therefore we strongly welcome applications from people who identify as Black. 

The deadline for submissions is 10am Monday 12 July.

Interviews will be held on Wednesday 21 July (please tell us if you are unavailable at any time on this day).
