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.

The North Africa HR Operations manager deploys in-depth applied understanding of complex procedures within HR Operations to deliver high quality and efficient service to staff and management. This role will be mainly focusing on two countries but will also support the cluster team by providing operational HR expertise across the broad spectrum of HR activity and to support efficient and effective business operations.
The Middle East and North Africa is home to eight percent of the world’s population, five percent of global GDP, and 58 percent of global reserves of oil and gas. It is also one of the most unstable regions of the world, characterised by protracted conflicts and complex issues around refugee and displaced communities. It has the highest rate of youth unemployment, and double the global average for female unemployment. Collectively this is placing a huge strain on existing political, social and economic structures, adding to the uncertainty and fragility of the region.
The British Council retains an on-ground presence in North Africa/Maghreb countries with 568 employees based in Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Libya, and Egypt who are ensuring the delivery of BC services through different SBUs like Cultural Engagement, English and Exams, and others. Our work takes a long-term approach to engagement, helping to build trust and influence for the UK.
The HR function works to meet the needs of both the organisation and employees through successfully aligning British Council objectives and our people management strategy. We do this by partnering with and advising our colleagues to make the right people decisions.
The North Africa HR Operations Manager is to provide comprehensive HR services which ensure that the leadership team, managers and employees are equipped with best practice to foster a high-performance culture. They will work together with the North Africa HR Operations Manager and the local Leadership team to identify potential resourcing solutions, providing input on induction, talent and performance management, and supporting managers on employee relations. The postholder will implement and communicate HR policies and procedures in line with British Council standards, values, and operational business objectives as well as with local labour law.
