Our People

In line with our values, every staff member of the British Council is required to display the following behaviours:

I gain the active support of other people so they are fully engaged and motivated to contribute effectively. I do this by communicating our purpose in a way that others can understand and that achieves shared clarity. I help them understand the part they play, so that our aims are clear to all.

I find common ground and build relationships and connections to support British Council goals. I do this by building trust with others, by paying attention to their concerns and needs, and showing that I understand their interests. I achieve understanding and trust in a culturally sensitive way - whatever my role.

Knowing that we will achieve more with other people than we can do separately, by sharing goals and resources to add more value. I work towards common goals with others. I do this by agreeing effective and respectful ways of sharing success. I generate mutual support, shared benefits and promote interdependence.

I show accountability and commitment to the British Council and I demonstrate resilience and determination. I hold myself and others responsible for delivering goals in line with the shared purpose of the British Council. I give and accept constructive feedback to maximise high performance and manage under-performance.

I deliver excellent results, achieve challenging goals and develop myself and others. I do this by setting clear and demanding objectives to deliver what is required. I stay focused on measurable outcomes, while building longer-term capability. I demonstrate standards of excellence and deliver value for money. I measure progress and adapt plans when necessary.

I achieve better business, innovation and growth by using my professionalism, knowledge and expertise to create a clear focus on what I want to achieve. I spot opportunities, plan appropriately and create innovative solutions that recognise ambiguity and deliver business benefit.
