About the role

Exciting opportunity for an adventurous accountant looking to gain international experience and volunteer for a not-for-profit organisation raising awareness on sustainability in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Accounting for International Development offers every type of accountant, from anywhere in the world, the opportunity to use their skills to support a broad range of non-profit organisations globally. Volunteer Accounting Assignments of between 2 weeks and 6 months form part of our ongoing strategy to build the financial management capacity of charities in over 50 countries.

Our partner is a non-profit start-up based in Costa Rica, known as one of the most sustainable countries in the world. Their mission is to align Latin America with the Global Agenda on sustainable goals and provide the region with the reference points to understand, adapt and implement this Agenda.

You will begin with an internal review of their current financial procedures, systems and controls. You will be assessing the capacity and resources of the team and organisation and making recommendations for best practice, training staff to build their capacity. You will be improving and introducing new procedures as needed to further strengthen and formalise their structure, making sure they are prepared for a potential external or donor-led audit. New regulations have been introduced in Costa Rica and they will need to be yearly audited, so they want to make sure they are prepared for this event.

Apart from audit preparation, one of our partner’s main requests was to receive specialised support in developing a business model for their organization, to increase sustainability. They would like your support in building their strategy and benchmark prices for standardised services. They have good reputation and strong connections with main private donors in the region, but investors are requesting more services and they would like to be prepared with presenting professional business proposals. You will also have the possibility to attend one of their events and advise on how the can financially improve the rateability of the events.

Affordable accommodation provided.
