Our partner is a non-governmental organization with a mission to build and strengthen children and families’ relationships, safeguarding the physical and mental well-being of all children.

You will begin with an internal review of their financial systems, procedures and controls, making recommendations for best practice, taking into consideration their needs, complexity, local context and capacity of the staff.

They would like support with building a robust financial and reporting system to track expenses, do petty cash, cost centre management and budget management. They would like to have universal financial procedures utilised by all centres, and a system to allow planning, budgeting, reporting, cost analysis and preparation for audits – they currently use Excel.

You will also provide the local centres’ coordinators with financial training, once agreed on procedures and a system to be utilised by the entire organization.

Accommodation provided.
