About the role
Are you an accounting professional looking to use your skills and experience to give something back to society and those less fortunate around the world? Perhaps swap London for Laos, Melbourne for Malawi or Boston for Belize!?
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 promotes the empowerment of indigenous women and their families in rural Guatemalan highland communities, focusing on their economic self-sufficiency. This artisan social enterprise provides fair trade jobs to a group of 60 women weavers and artisans.
You will be developing an accounting system or improving their current one. This should streamline the information and provide improved tools for budgeting, forecasting and reporting.
Additionally, you will be conducting an internal review of their existing financial procedures, policies and controls and will be making recommendations for improvement according to best practices and international standards, appropriate to the context and capacity of the team.
You will help them establish clear procedures and guidelines, and offer training to the directors in utilising the new tools.
