Job description

The Atlantic Institute was established in 2016 with the support of The Atlantic Philanthropies, and in collaboration with the Rhodes Trust, Oxford (UK). 

At the Atlantic Institute we are committed to building a lifelong community of courageous changemakers who together will accelerate the eradication of inequity and injustice resulting in fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies. Our Fellows and Staff are accomplished leaders working in diverse settings and contexts, who together think, learn, incubate and implement strategies for greater impact. The diversity of our fellows is unprecedented and we are committed to the radical inclusion of these leaders as agents of change in communities most impacted by social, economic, racial and health inequities.  We provide them with the networks, architecture and resources to connect, learn and act to address the underlying systemic causes of inequity.

In the current global environment of a pandemic, the courageous work to eradicate inequities is more urgently needed than ever. To support, deepen and sustain our community’s impact at this critical juncture, we have therefore created several new permanent roles, including:

  • Associate Executive Director (Community, Programming and Impact)
  • Augmented and Virtual Realities Lead                                      
  • Program and Impact Lead (Innovation and Special Projects)
  • Learning and Evaluation Lead
  • Data Insight Analyst.

Program and Impact Lead (Innovation and Special Projects)

We are looking for a Program and Impact Lead (Innovation and Special Projects) who will work with a team of program and impact leads to build a strongly connected lifelong community of Senior Fellows and Program staff. This involves the design and facilitation of programs and the delivery of convenings, workshops, on-line engagement and learning opportunities underpinned by critical and inclusive pedagogy. You will also support the development of a network of contacts with the University of Oxford and beyond, who can serve as speakers and facilitators.

Core competencies

Consistent with all roles at the Atlantic Institute, it is essential that you demonstrate a critical understanding of the diverse root causes of inequities and show a commitment (in thinking and in action) to fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies. In addition, you will have the following skills, experience, and qualifications:

  • Effective leadership skills, ability to motivate, support and engage a community of purpose in an agile and complex environment
  • Significant experience, ideally at least five years, in critical and transformative curriculum design and adult teaching and learning (including co-design and narrative change)
  • Strong intellectual capability with the capacity to engage with senior academics, business leaders, government officials, other leaders in a range of settings
  • Undergraduate degree or equivalent is essential. The successful candidate will ideally have a post-graduate qualification in a thematic area relevant to the Atlantic Fellows mission, public sector or business management.

Terms of appointment

Subject to a satisfactory probationary period of 6 months, this is a permanent role.
