Why the DofE is important to us

Hear from our Chief Operating Officer about what the DofE means to RSM…

David Gwilliam, Chief Operating Officer, RSM

 “The DofE provides young people with the skills which are held in high stead with RSM. Here at RSM we think it is important to recognise these attributes and allow them to be used in everyday life, including the workplace. We understand that young people with a DofE Award will have experiences and will have faced challenges which will set them up for their working life.”

What advice would you give your 16 year old self?




My advice to my 16 year old self would be to get involved in as much as you can to build your CV. There is so much competition for jobs that you really need to be able to differentiate yourself from the others.
