NGO helping communities to benefit from natural resources [585]

Accommodation & Visa

Monrovia, Liberia

2 - 5 Months

Our partner has been influential in transforming how natural resources are managed, and benefits from these are shared with local communities in Liberia. They are seeking an experienced and dynamic pro bono accountant to support them in building and strengthening their control environment, developing financial management tools, and building the capacity of the finance team.

Your role will be to:

  • Review the control environment, accounting & financial management processes, specifically developing procedures to enable them to easily collect supporting documents from their field offices.
  • Review the responsibilities of the finance staff, ensuring that there is a clear segregation of duties and processes are streamlined, so that there is no duplication of work and staff time is used efficiently.
  • Develop financial management tools, including an organisational budget, budget monitoring and reporting tools.
  • Offer further training to all staff Quickbooks and support them in making the most of the software.

Given all the changes in the organisation and the broad scope of work, it will be an interesting time to join the organisation, and really make an impact. Whilst the structure is being changed, this placement will require patience and especially at the initial stages gaining trust and cultivating positive working relationships with the staff. Our partner gets funding from a number of donors (including institutional donors), and therefore this will be an excellent opportunity for an adventurous accountant considering transitioning into the not for profit sector.
