Rwanda Volunteer Accountant @ Social Enterprise Empowering Local Farmers 4-6 Months 583

Unique opportunity for an adventurous accountant (CPA/ACCA - or equivalent) looking to gain international experience and work with inspiring and innovative people. Flights & accommodation & meals allowance provided

Our partner is a growing social enterprise in Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania that is leading the way innovating a new way of helping farm families to achieve their full potential. Instead of giving handouts, they invest in farmers to generate a permanent gain in farm income; they provide farmers with a "service bundle" that includes education, finance, seed and fertilizer and market facilitation.

Your Role

They are seeking someone experienced to support them in reviewing and shortening their timelines for reporting: this will include reviewing their existing processes, making recommendations on streamlining and standardising these, and supporting them in improving the visibility on their reporting tools.

They would also like the volunteer to review these and develop one tool that allows them to effectively monitor their performance as an organisation. Moreover, they are developing a new line of business in one country and would like technical accounting support in understanding how best to integrate this new line of business into their accounting and financial management system.

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 months.
