There’s never been a better time to be working in cultural relations in the Caribbean.
The British Council’s purpose is to create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and to build trust between them worldwide. Here in the Caribbean we’ve got a fantastic base to achieve this through our work out of three offices in Cuba, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago.
As the UK’s principal cultural relations organisation the British Council is strongly committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. Our work is centered on building meaningful, enduring and respectful relationships across different cultures. We do this through having a commitment and passion for equality, inclusion and valuing diversity in all our projects.
We welcome individuals and look forward to engage whatever your age, ability, gender, ethnicity/race, religion/belief or sexual orientation and we positively look towards opportunities for partnering with individuals and organisations with similar values across the Caribbean.
We currently run projects for women film makers across the Caribbean; we encourage Jamaican young men from difficult backgrounds to express themselves and tell their stories through physical theatre, dialogue and music; we have an island wide EU funded Human Rights project in Jamaica working with youths and supporting the capacity of Civil Society Organisation.
