About the UWC National Committee of Canada
A relatively young organization continuing a long Canadian tradition of promoting the United World College (UWC) mission to make education a force for peace and sustainability, the UWC National Committee of Canada (NCC) has an important role to play in seeking, selecting, and supporting Canadians to be part of the UWC movement.

Someone who is hard-working, adaptable, diplomatic, has strong judgment, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, particularly when it comes to handling sensitive, complex, and confidential information. This job requires autonomy, as well as excellent collaboration skills.
