Our Equal Opportunity Policy

We are committed to a policy of equal opportunity and welcome applications from all sections of the community. Our policy helps to ensure that there is no unjustified discrimination in the recruitment, retention, training and development of staff, and that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the basis of age, disability, race/ethnicity, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation or any other grounds. For further information on our approach to equal opportunities and diversity, please visit our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion web pages.

Child protection

We recognise that we have a fundamental duty of care towards all children we engage with, including a duty to protect them from abuse. We achieve this through compliance with UK child protection laws and relevant laws in each of the countries in which we operate, as well as by adherence to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), 1989. Our child protection policy is mandatory for all British Council staff and job applicants will be assessed regarding their suitability to work with children.

Privacy

All applications will be handled in accordance with our privacy policy.
