About the role

Fantastic opportunity for an adventurous accountant looking to gain international experience, work with inspiring colleagues and volunteer for an non-profit teaching children to play musical instruments in Kampala, Uganda.

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 began as an initiative to donate pianos, and has since extended into an organisation teaching children how to play the piano, and later other instruments. They aim to be a centre of excellence for music in Uganda, believing everyone should have the opportunity to develop musical talents and appreciation.

You will begin by conducting a fresh internal review of their current financial procedures, systems and controls. You will be reviewing their progress since our past placements and assessing the current capacity of the team, identifying any gaps or weaknesses and providing training as needed. You will be coaching the new Accountant, who is currently struggling to keep on top of her duties.

The ED is keen to establish best practice with the day-to-day bookkeeping and month end procedures, to minimise error and to install clear guidelines and task lists. He would also like you to introduce more analysis and management accounting procedures and better board reporting. Other areas he has highlighted are cashflow forecasting; bursary scheme accounting; project financial forecasting; and further analysis of the NGO business model.

Affordable accommodation available.
