Since its creation in 1956 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, The DofE has been supporting young people from all walks of life to discover their potential, and help them build their futures. Demand by young people who take part in the Award has continued to grow, with the programme now reaching more than 400 thousand 14-24 years olds every year. By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, get involved in their community and experience adventure, The DofE can play a huge role in their self development as they work towards finding their purpose, passion and place in the world.

The DofE allows young people to set their own goals, record their progress and have their achievements consistently recognised worldwide, giving them a unique international accreditation of their experiences, valued by employers and universities. Now they are looking for a new CEO who will build on their vision and take them forward as they embark on a new chapter. The new CEO will be passionate about developing young people; a strategic thinker and a visible, inspirational leader. The DofE are looking for a skilled influencer who is adept at building partnerships and creating opportunity.
