British Council is the world's leading cultural relations organisation. We see ourselves as an entrepreneurial public service provider, who can create opportunities through global education. We give millions of people around the world access to materials that improve their English. We spread our passion for our most attractive assets: our language, arts and culture. This is about helping people across the world understand one another, work together and learn from each other. It's crucial to building trust, a closer global community and secure, prosperous and sustainable futures for us all. To continue our work, we need people who can share and contribute to our vision.
At British Council, we see business as inspiring, empowering, even life-changing. For us it's a chance to share the UK's most attractive assets: language, education and culture, and to build long-lasting, cultural relationships with other countries. As one of our graduates, you can use your linguistic skills and business acumen in a truly rewarding context. You'll be a next-generation leader, driving an organisation that's nurturing trust and understanding across a global community with very real benefits in prosperity and trade.
There's never been a better time to be a British Council graduate. With an impressive record of success since 1934, we're a business that thrives on talent. We need the next generation of leaders who can build on this success, work well in an ambitious team and use their passion, commitment and integrity to make things happen.
We've created a series of rigorous programmes, designed to highlight the qualities that you already have. It's a chance to develop your full potential and give you the cultural relations edge that will prepare you for a bright future with us. These programmes support our principles of providing opportunities for learning and for developing wider cultural relations, specifically within a difficult economic climate.
The challenges vary depending on the country you're assigned to, particularly with regards to the political, cultural and economic situation. But one thing's guaranteed, you'll have real and tangible responsibilities and projects to deliver from day one.
