Changing the world takes passion and dedication

Isn’t it time that your passion and dedication be channelled towards a career and community that genuinely change lives?

If you...

  • want to transform your own life by transforming the lives of others

  • crave a career that creates opportunity for others

  • desire to make dreams come true for those who never thought it possible

  • know that education is the foundation from which we can change the world

  • believe that today’s young people can transform tomorrow

  • strive for world peace and global sustainability

  • dare to dream

...then a career with UWC could be the change you need. 

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 young people from around the world to study in one of our 18 schools on four continents. There they don’t just learn how to be great at passing exams. They learn how to communicate across cultural boundaries. They develop the skills to be a changemaker. They design and engage in initiatives that transform their lives and the lives of those around them for the better. And they stay a “UWC-er” for life, becoming part of a global community of almost 60,000 changemakers transforming the lives of others. 

Are you our new Communications and Engagement Officer?

Right now, we are searching for a Communications and Engagement Officer. 

Part of the larger Advancement Team at UWC International, the Communications and Engagement Team provides the UWC movement with strategic leadership, support and advice in the area of internal and external communication, PR, promotion, marketing, crisis communications, alumni and wider community engagement, and partnerships with other organisations. The Team has a coordination and support function for teams across the UWC International Office, as well as other UWC stakeholders, such as UWC schools, colleges, national committees and governance bodies.

As a Communications and Engagement Officer, you will provide support in a wide range of communications and community engagement activities, collaborating with many UWC stakeholders including colleagues based in the London and Berlin offices. As an excellent copywriter, a lot of your responsibilities will have to do with content writing, whether it is inspiring speeches, interviews, or engaging newsletters. And on the community engagement side, you will make a difference by leading initiatives that bring together our community of alumni, students, volunteers and staff.

You will report to the Communications Coordinator and will work closely with the Digital Communications Officer.
