  • HR Venue is highly compatible with British Council’s organizational culture and recruitment practice where it offers dynamic and flexible systems. We have received very positive feedback from the candidates regarding the comfort that HR Venue provides. It is now the essential part of our interview panels as you do not need to be at a specific location/office or be in an identified time slot to review the applications as a panel. We believe this helped us in leveraging both our HR and employer brand internally and externally.
