British Council Careers and Employment

About us
The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. We create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and build trust between them worldwide.

We work in more than 100 countries and our 7000 staff – including 2000 teachers – work with thousands of professionals
 – more... and policy makers and millions of young people every year by teaching English, sharing the Arts and delivering education and society programmes.

We are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter. A core publically-funded grant-in-aid provides less than 25 per cent of our turnover which last year was £781m. The rest of our revenues are earned from services which customers around the world pay for, through education and development contracts and from partnerships with public and private organisations. All our work is in pursuit of our charitable purpose and supports prosperity and security for the UK and globally.

I'm a part timer there. I like it a lot, it's fun and it's great for a fresh grad.
hours are very flexible, wok environment is fun and friendly, management is good.

We are paid hourly, so salaries are not that great sometimes but again it's very very flexible and a good job for fresh grads

I can't speak for full timers.
lovely work environment
Don't care much about branches besides the Agouza one (Egypt)
