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.
Working closely with the Human Resources Manager, you will support the management of an effective function within the College, offering comprehensive, professional and confidential HR services including providing HR advice, support, guidance and direction in a range of areas including HR policy and procedure, recruitment and selection, induction, payroll administration and the management of casework.
You will have experience of working with an HR department, ideally in a generalist role with a good understanding of employment legislation, best practice, policy development and safer recruitment practices.
Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills ensure that you can relate to people at all levels, build and maintain relationships and react calmly in challenging situations. A positive, professional and can do approach is absolutely essential as is the ability to work independently and as part of a team.
