Working for the British Council offers you a unique opportunity to gain experience and develop skills. Jobs with the British Council offer scope for versatility, initiative and creativity in a stimulating and supportive environment.

Work with us

British Council is UK's international organisation for educational and cultural relations and manages a wide range of activities covering the arts, science, technology and education. Through our work we aim to build and develop long-term relationships with governments, organisations and people to provide mutual benefit and promote a wider knowledge of the UK and the English language. All jobs in the organisation contribute towards these aims. All our work is concerned with people and involves quality and customer care.

The British Council is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and is keen to reflect the diversity of UK society at every level within the organisation. We welcome applications from all sections of the community. In line with the British Council's Child Protection policy, any appointment is contingent on thorough checks. In the UK, and in other countries where appropriate systems exist, these include criminal records checks. We are committed to employing disabled people.

Teach with us 

Palestine plays a major role in the British Council’s ELT work across the whole Arabic-speaking region. The British Council in Palestinian Territories operates through our English language centres in Jerusalem and Ramallah, and occasionally in other parts of the West Bank and Gaza, offering a selection of adult and children’s courses.

Teacher Apprenticeship Scheme

We regularly recruit trainees for our Teacher Apprenticeship Scheme. Participants receive a contribution towards the cost of a UK teaching qualification, the Cambridge CELTA, which they can take in Amman or Cairo. They also receive additional support and mentoring as they begin their teaching career with us.

We advertise for the Teacher Apprenticeship Scheme twice a year, in March/April and September/October. Please check our facebook page for advertisements.
