Our partner engages local communities and Ugandan youth in conserving the Kibale National Park and other wild areas. They require a volunteer to review their simple accounting system and provide some help and guidance to their accountant.
Founded initially as a link between a chimpanzee research project and the local community, the charity now works with several partners on critical issues for the survival of the forest and support of the local population. They have a broad range of programmes, ranging from conservation and sustainable energy, to education and literacy, and there is often the opportunity for volunteers to get involved with this work.
You will be following in the footsteps of seven previous AfID volunteers, and you will start by reviewing their current system, procedures and controls to ensure they are meeting compliance and best practice. Your training will focus on their use of QuickBooks (no prior experience required) and audit preparation work.
This assignment is very much about continuing the progress of previous volunteers, and your review and recommendations will ensure they maintain a strong and robust finance function.
- The ideal candidate must hold a Bachelor’s Degree in finance, accounts, or any other related course.
- Computer literacy with at least MS Office packages
- Excellent organizational skills
- Strong communication skills
