About the Company
The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relationships.
Our purpose is to build mutually beneficial relationships between people in the UK and other countries and to increase appreciation of the UK’s ideas and achievements. We work in 110 countries and every year we help to create some form of personal contact with the UK for 16 million people around the world. In the Middle East, we operate in eight countries (Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen).
We are known around the world as leaders in the teaching and learning of English language. We are also a gateway to world-class education, a channel for the arts, science and technology, a cultural exchange, a facilitator for international partnerships, and a resource for development, good governance, human rights and positive social change.
The British Council is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and is keen to reflect diversity of UK society at every level within the organization. We welcome applications from all sections of the community. We guarantee an interview to disabled candidates who meet essential criteria.
