Street Child Commercial

Street Child Commercial (SCC) is a relatively recent venture of Street Child. SCC owns and operates a number of businesses in Sierra Leone, mainly in the hospitality industry. All profits of SCC are transferred into the charitable work in Sierra Leone, the street child projects and schools projects. All management and staff in SCC are Sierra Leone locals.SCC is currently a £500,000 p/a cash business which is expanding

The role

  • The organisational structures, procedures, processes, systems and controls currently in place at SCC are not adequate for the future of this fast growing organisation.
  • SCC is expected to need a complete overhaul of their structures and internal systems and controls to be ready for the future.
  • The board of directors of SCC have identified this as one of the key issues that is facing the organisation today. It is imperative that SCC gets the support it needs.
  • The current team of finance & accounting staff are good and have a strong understanding of the Sierra Leone way of doing things. We believe they need support in setting up the organisational structures, systems and controls.
  • You would work as a consultant to SCC management and finance & accounting staff to establish the organisational structures and internal systems and controls the organisation needs for the future, to ensure that SCC’s revenues are complete and accurate and that the organisation will be able to receive an unqualified audit opinion in future.
  • We are looking to develop uncomplicated, processes which will become locally owned. This is a capacity building role as much as anything else
  • In addition you will be expected to advise SCC management and staff on potential business ventures and opportunities for growth.

You will have considerable autonomy in this role with all the support you need from the directors of Street Child of Sierra Leone in the UK and the management of our local NGO partners in Sierra Leone.This is an opportunity to see the incredible benefits of the work Street Child does in Sierra Leone and an opportunity to have a significant impact on the lives of vulnerable children in Sierra Leone.
