# Job Description

The British Council builds connections, understanding and trust between people
in the UK and other countries through arts and culture, education and the
English language. We work in two ways – directly with individuals to transform
their lives, and with governments and partners to make a bigger difference for
the longer term, creating benefit for millions of people all over the world.
We help young people to gain the skills, confidence and connections they are
looking for to realise their potential and to participate in strong and
inclusive communities. We support them to learn English, to get a high-quality
education and to gain internationally recognised qualifications. Our work in
arts and culture stimulates creative expression and exchange and nurtures
creative enterprise. We connect the best of the UK with the world and the best
of the world with the UK. These connections lead to an understanding of each
other’s strengths and of the challenges and values that we share. This builds
trust between people in the UK and other nations which endures even when
official relations may be strained. We work on the ground in more than 100
countries. In 2019-20 we connected with 80 million people directly and with
791 million overall, including online and through our broadcasts and
publications.
