Geopolitical/SBU/Function overview:

The Arab Spring began in Tunisia and although many citizens are disappointed that there have not been more tangible outcomes from their revolution the Tunisian government and a very healthy CSO sector continues to work towards entrenching democracy and attracting inward investment. This has to be seen, however, against a backdrop of a sluggish economy and relatively high rates of unemployment.

The British Council, meanwhile, has a good reputation in Tunisia and works in the English and Examinations, Education, Arts, and Society sectors, with this latter an increasing priority and often offering client-funded opportunities.

The Customer Service team currently consists of 7 Customer Service Advisors (CSA) and is led by a Customer Service Manager (CSM) and Deputy Registrar.
