The British Council is recruiting for a Partnerships Manager to further partnerships with UK providers in our business areas – English language, the arts, education and society.


We want to:

- Revolutionise the way we think of libraries by curating exciting content from the UK and creating new experiences for   our customers.

- Source the best of UK resources and make them available to our audiences both physically and virtually.

- Create a digital platform which gives access to UK research and archived material in a way that has never been done   before. This in turn will increase access to our partners’ content and make it available globally
- Promote UK research and links to academic databases.

- Showcase the best of UK culture, not only by maximising our own resources but through tie-ups with other cultural        institutions from across the UK.

Our vision is that British Council libraries will not exist in isolation; they will act as a hub for UK collaboration and partnership.

The Partnerships Manager will be responsible for identifying, developing, negotiating and building partnerships with UK organisations for the British Council South Asia’s Library Revolution programme.

This is a transformational role, which aims to ensure that the British Council in South Asia has access to the right partnerships at the right time, to deliver the highest standards of content and innovation when benchmarked against external UK sector practice.
