About the Role

Unique opportunity for an adventurous accountant (CPA- or equivalent) looking to gain international experience, work with inspiring people and support education in Malawi.

Our partner is a youth-led NGO working in the rural Northern Malawian districts of Chitipa and Rumphi. They use a grass root, community engagement model to tackle issues affecting health, environment and education. They aim to create empowered communities which can influence rural development and where vulnerable and disadvantaged groups can thrive.

Their projects address the following issues/risks including poor attendance of girls in schools – their Keeping Girls Safe in School project creates adequate bathroom and changing rooms for girls in schools, provides reusable sanitary pads, holds engagement meetings with parent and teacher groups and educates on girls’ rights.

You will be the second AfID volunteer to support this community-based organisation. You will be reviewing their progress since the last volunteer’s placement in implementing and maintaining her recommendations including reviewing compliance with the procedures manual and ensuring accounts and reporting are being kept up to date. They are keen to try QuickBooks and you will be helping prepare them for this transition.

This broad and wide-ranging assignment is a great opportunity for accountants thinking about a career move to the international development sector to get an extensive insight in just a couple of months.
