Your job
Inclusion and diversity are fundamental to our culture and core values, fostering an innovative, collaborative and high-energy work environment. Having a diverse workforce of people with different capabilities, cultures, perspectives, abilities and experiences enables Accenture to compete effectively in the marketplace.

You are part of the Talent Strategy team at Accenture Netherlands. Within the programs, we are constantly looking for optimization of our diversity policy and initiatives for the company and our culture. At Accenture Netherlands, I&D plays an important role in employee engagement and creating an inclusive culture at the workplace. We achieve this by examining, enhancing and maintaining the satisfaction of our employees. You will be actively involved in our I&D policies and the activities around it. In addition, you will support different recruiting initiatives.

Your tasks are very diverse (it’s all in the name) and include, among others: leading (recruitment & leadership development) projects for female colleagues, organizing events and workshops for our internal diversity communities (cross-cultural, people with disabilities, refugees, women in Tech, working parents, etc.), continuously strengthening the I&D policy, setting up internal and external communication content and building and maintaining a relationship with various stakeholders.

We use modern tools, innovative approaches and our knowledge of best practice to ensure everything is running smoothly.
