The locations of posts in Chile vary from year to year. Examples of recent allocations are available in the 'Supplementary Information' document. You may state a preference in your application, however, we cannot guarantee that successful applicants will be placed in their prefered town/area. Applicants should be prepared to be flexible and accept a post wherever they are allocated.
Shortlisted candidates may be requested to attend an interview in person or over the phone.
Successful candidates will be invited to a one-day pre-departure briefing in London in late June or early July.
Induction courses are normally held in Chile prior to commencing the assistantship, usually at the British Council Chile offices in Santiago, or at the employing institution.
The average monthly allowance in previous years has been around 398.000 Chilean Pesos, and we expect this to be similar for 2017-18. This will provide a reasonable basic standard of living for one person.
The monthly allowance for Language Assistants varies from institution to institution, and will be confirmed in your contract.
