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 is a social enterprise sourcing and collecting waste from municipal and private providers and converts it to insect protein to be used as animal feed. This is a really well-rounded placement offering an individual the opportunity to develop accounting controls & processes, and financial management tools, and undertaking financial, market and business analysis.
Your role will be to support them in establishing and implementing appropriate controls, accounting and financial management processes and reporting tools. As a young business, they also want to ensure that they have developed tools to be able to easily monitor their cashflow, and their expenditure in relation to their budgets. Your role will also be to document the new processes.
Our partner aim to recruit a Financial Controller when they become profitable, and hope that until they are able to do so, the processes and systems developed by the volunteer will help them manage their finances, offer them information about the cash position of the organisation, and support them in meeting their grants compliance and reporting requirements.
Please note, that as the organisation is establishing its operations, it is working as a start-up organisation and will require the volunteer to be independent, hands on and able to really understand the context in which the organisation is operating when establishing an accounting & financial management system.
