Consortium has implemented practices that aim to reduce bias in our recruitment process. The people reviewing applications see the information provided in your covering letter, without access to information from your CV or the personal details provided in section 1 of the application form.

We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups, including people of colour or people from BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) communities, women, trans and non-binary people and people who are older (50+). We recognise the use of terms such as BAME/PoC reflect a diverse range of people and communities. We use it as inclusively as possible to reflect people from communities who experience racism and racial inequity.

Equity is important to the success of our team and work. We don’t want any barriers to applying so if you want to discuss particular aspects of our approach, or get a better understanding of whether Consortium is right for you, then please contact Helen, our Head of Partnerships and Development, on:


Role Purpose

Consortium hosts the UK’s largest network of LGBT+ organisations with over 500 Members.

Consortium is a partner in the Rainbow Badges programme, a national project funded by NHS England, promoting inclusive and affirmative healthcare across NHS Trusts and Foundations. This programme is delivered in partnership with LGBT Foundation, Stonewall, Brighton LGBT+ Switchboard and GLADD.

Further funding allows this programme to recruit a brand new Engagement Officer role. This role will join Consortium’s team, but also work alongside the rest of the Rainbow Badges team working across partner organisations.

This role will explore links between local LGBT+ organisations and NHS Trusts going through their assessment for the Rainbow Badges programme. The successful candidate will be responsible for supporting LGBT+ organisations with their knowledge of the health system and brokering new relationships, helping increase the availability of local LGBT+ expertise for healthcare settings, whilst also supporting local NHS Trusts, and Departments within them, to build strong and equitable relationships with local and intersectional LGBT+ organisations.

This role will also support the Client Account Managers undertaking the assessment process of each Trust to add additional intelligence and insight.



Consortium has been working as a virtual organisation for nearly 9 years with a team spread across the UK, all working from their own homes. A working from home payment, of a discretionary amount in line with HMRC guidance, is made to all staff to contribute to costs that might be incurred through this way of working.

Consortium encourages its team to maintain a good work life balance. Staff are encouraged to take time off in lieu for any hours worked beyond their contracted hours. Consortium’s core hours are between 10am and 3pm and staff can agree regular working patterns with their line manager.

Consortium has an auto-enrolment pension scheme, which all eligible employees benefit from.
