If your answer is 'yes' to all of these, keep reading.  

Want to know a little about us?

At Novuna, we care about building a better tomorrow.  With a focus on sustainability, and a passion for phenomenal customer experiences, we provide consumers and businesses with the capital they need to realise their ambitions.

We're proud to be a Top 50 Inclusive employer. We're a signatory of the Women in Finance and the Race at Work Charter and we're Disability Confident Committed

What does the role involve?

Reporting to the Head of Talent & Employee Engagement, as an Inclusion and Diversity Manager you'll join us at an interesting point in our DE&I journey. You'll take the foundations that are already in place and will have the autonomy to build on them to get us ever closer to a fully-integrated approach to Inclusion & Diversity.  This will include nurturing inclusive leadership practices and culture, and ensuring DE&I is fully embedded in all our talent practices.  

Some of your key duties will include:

  • Development of our diversity & inclusion strategy that will drive a truly inclusive environment where diverse teams can thrive
  • Supporting and guiding our colleague communities, creating opportunities for collaboration around a shared vision 
  • Coaching and advising leaders and influencers across the business 
  • Acting as a subject matter expert and centre of excellence in relation to DE&I

What are we looking for?

You have strong knowledge of DE&I and your enthusiasm ignites passion in others you work with.  You have good knowledge of diversity and inclusion practices, whether you've been accountable for DE&I as your main job or through involvement in extra-curricular activities. You're also naturally a highly curious person, and resourceful when encountering new topics or areas of responsibility.  

Also, we're looking for the following: 

  • Excellent interpersonal and influencing skills 
  • Creative and critical thinking skills 
  • Comfortable working with and coaching senior leaders 
  • Capable of developing a strategy and gaining buy-in across the organisation 

What can we offer you?

At Novuna we take our people promise seriously. If you join us, you'll have a chance to make a difference, opportunities to learn, and time to shine.

In addition to a market-benchmarked salary and excellent bonus scheme, our offer to you includes:

  • Company car or cash alternative – with fantastic EV incentives
  • Flexible hybrid working
  • 25 days' holiday, plus bank holidays and the option to buy/sell 5 days
  • Full wellbeing package including BUPA, digital GP service, 24/7 employee assistance, plus wellbeing events throughout the year

What's the next step?

Interested?  Start your application today and see what Novuna can offer you. 

Novuna has been named one of the top 50 most inclusive employers for the fourth year running and this is also reflected in our recruitment process. We are committed to ensuring our application process is inclusive and accessible to all candidates.

We're Disability Confident Committed, so if you're a person with a disability, if you're neurodivergent, or if you have a condition that you believe may affect your performance during our selection process, we'll be happy to make reasonable adjustments to our processes for you.
