AfID has an exciting financial role with a long-standing Cambodian partner who works to provide primary and secondary ear healthcare, including diagnostic and rehabilitative audiology procedures, to people across all age ranges in Cambodia.

It was founded and is still run by a British audiologist who recognised that the lack of audiological healthcare in Cambodia as disastrous for the well-being of disadvantaged communities.

Our partner’s target groups include:

Profoundly deaf children, deaf-blind children, orphans, children infected with HIV, former child labourers, street children, victims of domestic violence, or trafficking and prostitution, and poor communities within regions without any access to specialist health care.

The organisation does not currently have specialist finance staff, but relies on its doctors and administrators to perform essential finance tasks. A volunteer interim accountant is required for a four week placement.

This will be the fourth AfID volunteer on placement at the charity. The focus of the work would be:

(1) Preparation of annual financial statements and (2) Preparation of basic annual forecasting models on an income and expenditure or cash-flow basis for the next 12 to 24 months.

The charity’s head office is in the capital, Phnom Pen, and many recreational activities and world famous attractions are nearby.

Please bear in mind that if you feel this placement is not quite right for you, we have hundreds of other opportunities across Asia, Africa and South America.

Through AfID you could be budgeting with a health centre in Haiti, coaching a school bookkeeper in Burundi, financial reporting for a disability charity in Cambodia or mentoring an INGO's new FC in the Philippines.

Accounting for International Development (AfID) arranges tailor-made volunteer placements from 2 weeks to 12 months with charities all over the developing world. Let us know the causes you’re interested in, your skills and country preferences, and we will put together an overseas placement which allows you to use your accountancy skills and help charities at the same time.
