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 business working to provide viable employment options for the families of Sri Lankan tea estate workers and to produce sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion.

The organisation is going through a period of growth and are formalising many of their procedures. They have requested support to help them navigate through this process. You will begin with an internal review of their current financial information, procedures, systems and controls. You will be making recommendations for best practice, in keeping with the current capacity and resources of the team.

The Founding Director would like to improve their financial planning, cashflow forecasting, budgeting and reporting. You will be helping to install a robust and simple system that enables them to make financial decisions and set goals. They would also like you to conduct cash and bank reconciliations and train staff in how to maintain these regularly.

Affordable accommodation available.
