Posted on: Saturday 19 October
Posting no: 9731095568

Accounting for International Development (AfID) arranges tailor-made volunteer placements for accountants from 2 weeks to 12 months at charities all over the developing world.
You could be budgeting with a street kid centre in Kampala, coaching a hospital bookkeeper in Kigali, financial reporting for a school in Kathmandu or mentoring an INGO's new FC in Khartoum. Accounting for International Development (AfID) arranges tailor-made volunteer placements from 2 weeks to 12 months at charities all over the developing world.

Grassroots organisations such as health clinics, street child centres and schools hugely benefit from financial coaching and support: the improvement in financial management allows them to continue their good work, to reach out more in their communities and secure a long term future.

AfID now supports over 150 charities: let us know your availability, the countries and issues you%u2019re interested in, along with your strengths, and we will customise voluntary assignments to match your profile.

Assignments typically focus on areas such as:

- Conducting a Financial Health Assessment/Internal Audit

- Coaching and developing the accounting skills of local charity staff

- Assisting with the preparation and analysis of financial plans and budgets

- International donor relations reporting

- Implementation of robust and sustainable financial controls and procedures

The need for skilled accountants is largely driven by a lack of training at local level, combined with the complex reporting requirements of donor organisations. When you are a headmistress, doctor or a nun trying to run a charity with very limited resources, it can be very difficult to keep accurate records and perform your normal duties - with a different set of accounts and reports required by each donor, of which there can be many, you begin to see the problem.

Additional responsibilities may include:

- Sourcing new local charity partners

- Assisting partners with funding proposals and assessments.

- Teaching English, sports & Microsoft Office skills

- Developing local income generation projects and small businesses

Please forward our details to any accountants in your network that you think would be interested in our work.
