The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Foundation's (the Foundation) mission is to promote The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award (known as the DofE in the UK), provide young people with access to the Award, and preserve the quality of the Award worldwide.

Our ambition is that every young person aged 14 to 24 should have the opportunity to participate.

The Foundation works with leaders and Award Operators to develop the Award in their country, enabling even more young people to embark on an enjoyable and exciting Award journey.

The Award is also delivered by Independent Award Centres (IACs), which are single locations, such as a school or youth club, who are licensed by the Foundation to operate the Award where no Award Operator exists. IACs deliver the Award exclusively to their students or members and report directly to the Foundation.

The Operations Administrator’s role is to provide effective administrative support to the Operations team to work with the IACs to ensure the highest quality delivery of the Award.

This role entails a mixture of answering queries from people delivering the Award and maintaining up to date details for the licenses we’ve issued to our delivery partners.

They must be organised, with a high level of attention to detail and must be dedicated to providing excellent service to stakeholders.
