UWC Atlantic is at the heart of a powerful global movement and at the vanguard of
progressive education worldwide. We are proud to be a part of the UWC family of
18 schools and colleges worldwide – and for our courage to champion the values,
ideas and aspirations in which we all believe. We are 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.
We continue 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. They 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.
Compliance and risk management are key areas of the College that we need to strengthen.
Focussing on developing, implementing and continuously reviewing the College’s Risk
Management Strategy and Framework and all associated tools and processes you will
ensure that these are appropriately communicated and embedded across the College.
Your significant experience in this area will enable you to confidently lead on developing,
reviewing and managing the College’s Policy Framework and associated processes and
procedures to ensure they are compliant with legal and regulatory requirements, regularly
reviewed and communicated in a way which is clear, concise and jargon free.
Setting up and leading the Risk Management Group, you will support the creation of a
continuous improvement culture working College wide ensuring that risk and compliance
practices are improved, gaps in risk management practice are identified and appropriately
mitigated. You will provide regular high level management information and technical
compliance reports to the Leadership Team and Board of Governors, identifying risks and
areas of non-compliance so that they can be managed.
Your project management skills will enable you to take responsibility for key risk projects
as required and you will also review policies and procedures and produce new ones where
there are gaps. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills enable you to interpret
and communicate complex technical information concisely and clearly.
