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 US based partner’s Kenyan operation provides orphaned children with shelter, food, clothes and access to healthcare and education. They require high-level strategic guidance as they build their internal finance and administrative structures.
The organisation runs a commercial farm which provides food for a children’s shelter and employment for some of the parents of the children they are supporting. They have an ambitious business development plan that will see them open a 2nd shelter, enabling them to support more children.
Working in collaboration with senior management staff, your role would be to make recommendations that will ensure they have robust systems that meet compliance and accountability needs, and enable them to report back to the Kenyan and US Boards effectively. They would also like you to advise on business and financial planning, to help them achieve their goal of the farm becoming financially sustainable in the future.
This partner would particularly benefit from a volunteer with experience in senior finance roles, who is comfortable operating in an advisory capacity at the strategic and Board level.
Affordable accommodation available.
