The British Council is inviting applications from experienced researchers to deliver research into the skills needs of festivals managers from across the Gulf.


The British Council has set aside up to £30k to cover the researcher’s fee and the cost of producing an externally facing summary document.

Your application must include a budget breakdown with the option to opt out of producing the externally facing document. 

The British Council will cover accommodation, flights (Economy Class), and visas and provide a per diem separately.
