UWC is a global family of schools with a powerful difference. With a shared goal of working towards global peace and sustainability, we bring together a diverse range of young people from around the world to study in one of our 17 schools on four continents.
Our approach to education crosses the traditional boundaries of academic excellence, we equip our students with the skills they need to become global change-makers. Here they learn how to communicate across cultural boundaries, they design and engage in initiatives that transform their lives and the lives of others and they become part of a global community of over 60,000 proud alumni.
The UWC International Office is the executive arm of UWC International, a UK-registered charity, and is situated at the heart of the UWC movement. It is currently located in an office in central London and a second office will soon be opened in Berlin.
UWC International collaborates closely with all stakeholders from across the UWC movement, engages the UWC alumni community of more than 60,000 members and serves UWC International’s governance bodies.
Global fundraising is one of the core functions of UWC International, with over 80% of national committee selected boarding students at UWC schools and colleges receiving a scholarship to enable access to a UWC education, independent of socio-economic means.
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced major gifts fundraiser to join this unique international organisation. Reporting to the Head of Philanthropy, you will play a lead role in helping UWC International meet their ambitious funded scholarships targets and explore new avenues for donor engagement. With a commitment to UWC’s mission, you will enjoy working as part of a global network of development professionals.
You will bring a strong track record in securing gifts at the five and six-figure level ideally gained in the education sector or an international setting, and will enjoy working to ambitious targets. In addition to being a sophisticated relationship builder, you will have the ability to think laterally and pursue opportunities at a global level. As a self-starter, you will enjoy taking initiative to secure results and have demonstrable experience in preparing fundraising proposals, budgets and donor communications.
