Role based in UWC Atlantic, St Donat’s Llantwit Major or alternatively at our London office, 55, New Oxford Street, WC1A 1BS.

UWC Atlantic is at the heart of a powerful global movement and at the vanguard of progressive education worldwide. The college is proud to be a part of the UWC family of 18 schools and colleges located worldwide and is driven by the UWC mission to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. It drives everything we do.

The college continues to embrace the spirit of those pioneers who not only created the college in Wales in 1962 and launched the UWC movement in 1967 but who also co-created the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme, in collaboration with the International School of Geneva (Ecolint) and UN International School in New York (UNIS).

Our multicultural student body, from over 90 countries every year, comprises young people from vastly differing political, religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. Students are selected to attend UWC Atlantic based on their demonstrated promise and potential, to make a difference in the fields of sustainability, social justice and peace. These inspirational young people are the next generation of change makers, empowered to go on to careers and lives that create impact locally, nationally and globally.

The Philanthropy, Engagement and Partnerships (PEP) team, based on campus in Wales and in London, works with a number of college clients and partners who donate financially or give their time to various aspects of its work. For example, the department forms the essential link between the college and its graduates - our alumni community, across cultures and continents, professional spheres and life experiences, to ensure that we stay connected to each other and to the UWC values.

Moving forward, the PEP team aims to develop a more inspired, enthused and engaged alumni community and to develop and celebrate a “culture of philanthropy” – encouraging alumni to give their time, financial support and expertise to support the colleges’ future ambitions. The PEP team also collaborates with numerous high level trusts and foundations that support the college’s work and are aligned to its vision and values. The team has high fundraising targets and ambitions for the future and this role will play a key part in ensuring we realise those ambitions.

You will lead on prospecting across the team, including identification of prospects, due diligence, producing top class research profiles and monitoring pipelines through our moves management system. The team takes a data driven approach to fundraising, ensuring that information is centrally logged and can be used in the future to help us identify further high value opportunities.

Research skills will be utilised to retrieve, synthesise, accurately record and present information to enable the PEP team at UWC Atlantic to engage and build relationships with donors, existing and new, most motivated by UWC’s mission, which is to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.

This role will report into the Operations Manager but will support the entire fundraising team. With experience of using a CRM database (ideally Raisers Edge), you will be responsible for ensuring the team utilise the prospect management functionality on Raisers Edge. You will support the Operations Manager with monthly gift processing, month end data input, income reports and data analysis for the team as well as ensuring our data is accurate and up to date. You will also support the team in curating and creating content that is beneficial for fundraising. This includes event briefing notes, project proposals and grant

We are looking for a proactive, driven individual with excellent organisation, research and database skills. You will have an in depth understanding of the principles of philanthropy fundraising and donor motivations and use this to inform your research practices.

You will be committed to the deliberate diversity that is core to UWC Atlantic, candidates will demonstrate the ability to identify and address biases and use culturally relevant approaches to support students and employees.
