NGO organisation promoting multilingualism as a mean of education

Affordable Accommodation

Medellin, Colombia

2 Weeks

Our partner is a young Colombian registered NGO that promotes multilingualism and linguistic diversity as a means of education, social development and positive change in the community.

You will begin with an internal review of their accounting procedures, systems and controls, making recommendations for best practice while taking into account the local context, needs, capacity and resources of the local team. You will start implementing the recommendations, in order of priority as decided together with the team, while also providing training to staff.

You will mainly be working with the Director, who is speaking fluent English and would benefit from your support in financial planning, developing a sustainability analysis, understanding service pricing and financial benchmarking. They have 2 part-time staff working on finance, one accountant that does their tax returns to the Government and a bookkeeper. They don't speak English but the director will be available to arrange some meetings and translate for you, to make sure your recommendations are understood and protocols followed as agreed.
