Our partner focuses on the prevention of sexual abuse and support for its victims, specifically for boys. In Cambodia rates of sexual abuse against boys has a higher prevalence but unfortunately adequate support is not widely given.

You will begin with an internal review of their existing financial procedures, systems and controls. You will be making recommendations for best practice that are appropriate to the resources and capacity of the team, starting to implement some of these and providing training so staff can maintain the changes. They are in the process of revising their financial policies for compliance which you can assist with. The Finance Manager has recently been promoted into the role and although he has a good understanding, he will benefit from some further coaching to help him manage his new tasks. They are using QuickBooks and Excel and need a review of their use and training on both. 

The previous FM changed the way they report to donors from QuickBooks which has since been questioned by auditors as the most effective way. The reporting requirements for the large donors can be both complex and demanding, and your review can help make this easier to manage. They are also concerned that they lack strong financial controls which need attention.
