You will be the first volunteer on assignment at our partner and your role would be to:

  • Conduct an internal audit,
  • Gain an understanding of the organisation and its structure,
  • Assess its existing financial procedures and controls,
  • Make recommendations,
  • Implement changes that you deem necessary. 


In addition, our partner feels that a thorough assessment of their accounting system and financial processes and controls, will be very useful. This includes assessing how their new software, Quickbooks, has been set up and is used, and identify areas of improvement and efficiency. Depending on the time you have on placement, you will have the opportunity to implement some of the recommendations yourself. The accountant would also benefit from some assistance with the change in software. 

This will be a three-week assignment; they would ideally like a volunteer to support them in May, and at a push, in June.
