Haiti Volunteer Accountant @ Development Organisation Supporting Local Initiatives 4-6 Weeks

Unique opportunity for an adventurous accountant (ACA/ACCA - or equivalent) looking to gain international experience and work with inspiring people. Accommodation, meals & stipend $100/month provided.

Originally established as an emergency response organisation to respond to the 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti, providing aid and assistance, our partner aims to serve as a bridge between international & local organisations to help them achieve their objectives, with the moto "Response! Relief! Renewal!"

Since the recent loss of their local accountant who was able to update QuickBooks, the training and continuity in maintaining accounting procedures has been lost. They are therefore looking to hire a new Finance Officer from the local community and ensure that the knowledge is not lost with staff changes.

Your Role

They have requested support to check & update their accounting records, provide training to the new Finance Officer and another member of staff in bookkeeping and using Quickbooks, support in drafting a procedures & policies manual and QB manual and assistance in preparing the year-end accounts, budget and preparing for the external audit.

This broad and wide-ranging assignment is a great opportunity for accountants thinking about a career move to the international development sector to get an extensive insight in just a few weeks.
