Our partner encourages teachers in Brazil to develop and deliver educational projects and project-based learning practices in their classrooms. In doing so, they hope to create environments where children can meet their full potential, supporting their teachers and wider society to achieve key educational goals. 

The organisation is quite young and small in size and while they have complete financial records, their system is still basic.

You will begin with a review of their current financial procedures, controls and system. You will be reviewing staff capacity and resources and making recommendations for best practice that are appropriate to their need and increase efficiency and are appropriate to their need. In addition to a review on their control environment and accounting practices, they would like a volunteer to support them in preparing their financial statements, preparing for an external audit, and creating an organisational budget and budget monitoring tools.

This is an excellent placement and opportunity for an accountant to provide all round support to an organisation.
