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 provides health interventions to marginalised people and those often neglected by governments and other sources of aid. Their work is focused around border territories, with ethnic minorities and with other mobile and marginalised groups. Their main focus is on malaria prevention and treatment.
You will be conducting an internal review of their existing financial systems, procedures and controls and will be making recommendations for best practice, appropriate to the context and capacity of the team. Our partner has been developing accounting procedures and controls overtime and while they feel these are working well, they are still concerned that considerable risks remain.
They have requested support to strengthen and improve their finance management system that is also fit for practice in these special regions in which they work. They are using QuickBooks and would like you to also review their use of the system and its effectiveness. You will be helping to streamline financial processes to ease the burden on the team, while also improving the flow of financial management information.
You will be reviewing current job descriptions of the finance team and staff effectiveness in role. You will be working with the Country Director and the Head of Programmes for Asia, who is based in London and has overseen our previous roles with our partner. You will also be working closely with the finance team, a Head of Finance & Admin, 2 Finance Officers and an Admin Officer.
Accommodation, flights and stipend provided.
