Global NGO providing health interventions to marginalised people [592]

Flights, Accommodation and Stipend provided

Vientiane, Laos

8+ weeks

Our partner provides health interventions to marginalised people, with their work focused on malaria prevention and treatment within border territories. They have requested support to strengthen and improve their financial management system.

The organisation runs four main projects: reducing the malaria burden and impact of multi-drug resistance; malaria elimination through community focussed interventions; cross-border response for overlooked and stigmatised populations in Laos and Cambodia; and increased resilience and improved food and nutrition security for vulnerable communities.

Your role will be to conduct an internal review of their existing financial systems, procedures and controls and making recommendations for best practice, appropriate to the context and capacity of the team. Our partner has been developing accounting procedures and controls over time and while they feel these are working well, they are still concerned that considerable risks remain.

This is a wide-reaching role, also including reviewing their use of QuickBooks and the flow of financial management information, which will see the volunteer work closely with the local finance team as well as the Country Director and the Head of Programmes for Asia.
