Tony Hastings / Assistant Teaching Centre Manager, Colombia

What do you love most about working here?

People’s sense of humour, even as we navigate difficult times of uncertainty. 

Why would you recommend other people to join this organisation?

Lots of career opportunities.

What do you think is our company's biggest strength that we should be focusing on?

Outstanding teachers.

What three words would you use to describe our BC culture?

Desire to survive.

What impact has the British Council had in your career?

It’s given me the opportunity to have a variety of different roles and live in and visit different countries.  More importantly, it’s given me the opportunity to get to know people from all walks of life – different nationalities, different cultural and social backgrounds belief systems, amongst many other things.  It has helped me understand the wider world in a way I don’t think would have been possible with other organisations/companies. 

What motivates you to go above and beyond at work?

To try to minimise the possibility of other colleagues being over-worked.
