Our partner works with local entrepreneurs to set up learning centres in disadvantaged and marginalised communities, which are then staffed and run by locals. They require support in creating a financial procedures manual.

They aim to empower individuals and organisations to take responsibility for themselves and their futures, their families and their goals. The organisation is due their next audit shortly, and require a volunteer to ensure they are prepared for this.

You will begin with an internal review of their existing financial procedures, system and controls before making recommendations and implementing simple improvements. You will also be providing training on new procedures, tools and policies introduced as well as creating a financial procedures manual to ensure the learning is maintained within the organisation.

An excellent opportunity to work with a small, enthusiastic local finance team and to ensure they are well equipped with the tools they need to flourish.

Affordable accommodation available.
