(PRWEB UK) 10 May 2012
IRIS Accounting & Business Solutions would like to extend their congratulations to The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for being shortlisted in The Charity Awards 2012 in recognition for its work with young employees.
IRIS Exchequer customer The DofE was chosen for its outstanding training initiative for young apprentices and recruits, DofE Business.
The Charity Awards is the sector’s most prestigious excellence recognition scheme and the 2012 winners will be announced on 14 June.
The DofE works with a wide range of UK businesses allowing their employees, trainees and apprentices to benefit from a life-changing Gold DofE programme. In return, businesses support the Charity’s growth through donations that enable many more young people from all backgrounds to do their DofE in the wider community.
The Charity Awards is the highest profile event in the charity calendar. All shortlisted charities this year have been judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated outstanding best practice from which other organisations can learn.
IRIS Exchequer charity finance software helps not-for-profits become more accountable for their expenditure and provides on-demand access to detailed financial information.
As the number one choice for UK charities, IRIS Exchequer charity software has been a key solution partner to the NFP sector for over twenty years. Supporting over 1,500 not-for-profit organisations, IRIS Exchequer accounting software is used by 52 of the top 100 charities.
Recently awarded 100% user recommendation for the third year running in Charity Finance’s 2012 Annual Survey, IRIS Exchequer is used by all types of charitable and not-for-profit organisations, perfectly complementing NFP organisations’ existing web shops, CRM, fundraising and membership solutions.
The DofE partners with a wide range of employers, giving them the chance to offer the DofE to their young workforce.
With the number of young jobless at a record high, and unemployment among Britain’s graduates at its highest level for 17 years, the DofE welcomes the development of more employment and training opportunities for young people.
The DofE is calling on British business to recognise the DofE Award, partner with the Charity and support young people as they develop skills for life and work at this critical time. Any companies wanting to know more about DofE Business can find more information at http://www.DofE.org/supportus.
Award nominees will be formally announced on 3rd May 2012. A presentation dinner will be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 14th June 2012.
