UWC Atlantic College, founded in 1962, is the original United World College. Enjoying a spectacular location at St. Donat’s Castle, perched above the Bristol Channel approximately 20 miles west of Cardiff, our 380 students are drawn from over 90 countries, with many attending on scholarship and all of them taking part in a well-developed co-curricular programme.

Our unique and distinctive mission is ‘to be a world class educational institution equipping students with the skills and developing the commitment and confidence needed to create a more peaceful, socially just and sustainable world’. The College encourages international understanding and tolerance by demonstrating that conflict and hostility can be overcome if young people from different nations, races and religions are brought together and challenged physically and academically.

Instrumental in the creation of the International Baccalaureate, UWC Atlantic College has a global reputation for educational innovation. Students come with a vision and graduate empowered to make a positive difference in the world.

This role will be instrumental in supporting the planning, design and delivery of a programme of events worldwide, with an emphasis on Asia, USA and Europe, to cultivate relationships and improve revenues from key stakeholder audiences including Major and Principal donors, Alumni and Patrons, ensuring the programme is responsive to the fundraising ambitions of UWC Atlantic College.

You will be responsible for guaranteeing the highest standards of professionalism and quality in order to secure donor support at the Major and Principal levels. Leading on the delivery of events for our high-profile stakeholders and VIPs, such as the Global Ambassadors group and an Engagement programme of opportunities for our Alumni, you will be a dynamic and visionary events professional with excellent commercial awareness, coupled with a track record of strategic event management and business planning.

Your strong events background enables you to deliver complex events, as well as the long-term strategic development of the programme. This is a very exciting time for UWC Atlantic College as we develop our new strategy.
