I needed the job, and was delighted to get the chance

I enjoyed working with them. They need to hire more well spoken people in Karachi region. And less of their current employees family & friends.

Good quality of services

I had a great time with British Council as a venue staff. It depends on the person how they work in pressure or relaxation. I have learnt a lot that we should pay attention on our work only.

Productive work place but untrained management

I have found many problems at venue that seniors did not have any knowledge about safety and security. Also some administrative and management issues I registered but still not receiving any response on my request. Anyway the Staff in Pakistan is untrained and only have peace of paper that use for announcement and also to organise the venue.
