Exciting opportunity for an adventurous accountant looking to gain international experience, work with inspiring people and support sustainable development in Kenya.  (Accommodation provided)

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.

Background

Based in the small coastal town of Watamu, known for its marine national park and reserve, our partner is a small community-based organisation focussed on improving public health. They are seeking a volunteer to help them meet donor compliance and reporting requirements.

Their programmes include campaigns to prevent infectious tropical diseases, raise awareness of HIV, promote family planning and maternal and child health services and ensure the distribution of reusable sanitary pads.

Originally an informal group, the organisation now receives funding as an implementing partner of larger, more established NGOs. As they are starting to grow, they are keen to ensure that they will be able to meet donor compliance and reporting requirements and have requested support in identifying the most appropriate new accounting system to use.

Your Role

Your role will be akin to undertaking an internal audit – reviewing their accounting & financial management controls, processes and systems, and making and implementations for best practice based on the resources available to them and the skillset of the local team.
