It is the only global educational NGO that intentionally selects and brings together students from different socio-economic backgrounds, cultures, races, religions and nationalities.

UWCA is a residential sixth form college for young people aged 16-19, situated on the south Wales coast at St Donat’s Castle. Today, 350 pupils from over 90 nationalities make up their student body, all pursuing the two-year International Baccalaureate qualification.

UWCA combines a distinctive vision with a global reputation for educational innovation and an inimitable, world class education.  Their students are the next generation of change-makers.

As UWCA nears its 60th anniversary, they are significantly increasing their fundraising activities to support three key areas of the future – their People, Purpose and Place.  To help them achieve this, UWCA Leadership have created two new roles for an Associate Director, Philanthropy and a Major Gifts Manager, and are seeking experienced fundraisers who will identify, cultivate and steward major and transformational gift opportunities and match these with prospective donors.

The Associate Director, Philanthropy will design and drive a principal gifts strategy to engage individuals and private foundations to support our work.  Underpinning your success in this role is your track record of securing philanthropic gifts at the 6-figure level or more, and experience of working with donors internationally.  Ideally, you will have gained your experience in a complex environment where teamwork has been essential, and you have developed a reputation for being a collaborative colleague, with a growth mindset and can-do attitude.

This is an exciting time to join UWCA.  Their mission drives everything they do and should be part of your inspiration for applying for this role.


Please note, the post holder will be required to spend up to 3 days per week in the office in London, with monthly visits to UWC Atlantic.
