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 that builds and develops small scale solar systems as a source of energy, bringing access to clean electricity to remote local communities in Myanmar. They aim to replace the current systems based on diesel consumption with solar ones, having an impact both on the environment and improving accessibility to reliable and equitable sources of energy in the remote communities.

You will begin with a review of their existing finance procedures, systems and controls. You will be making and implementing recommendations for best practice, taking into account the resources and capacity of the team, and providing coaching as necessary.

They are looking to migrate all the accounting processes currently sub-contracted, to be performed in-house and you will support in this transition, setting-up financial procedures for bookkeeping, budget-to-actual comparison, accounts management and internal controls, while providing training and capacity building to the local team.

In addition, they have recently received grant funding from the Belgian provincial government and is expecting more positive results from other grant applications in 2020. They would like further guidance on making sure that their systems are set-up and compliant with quarterly and annual reporting requirements for regulatory and donor purposes.

Accommodation, meals & visa provided.
