What our people say

My job is to lead and develop a financial organisation spread across more than 50 countries. Working in such a global role at EF means quite a few air miles, but collaborating with so many great colleagues around the world makes it worth it.
Björn Bengtsson

CFO, EF Language

I spend a lot of my time on planning; trying to figure out how fast we can grow, supporting decision-making on markets we enter, offers to customers or where we're going to put teacher centers.
