Job Description

Background

Our partner provides a rescue service to multiple species such as crocodiles, elephants and bears, working amidst prominent illegal wildlife trade routes. 

They run a 24/7 hotline and work with the government on large scale confiscations. Alongside this service they also run a sanctuary for those animals that cannot be released.

Your Role

The organisation has identified a need to build more robust financial systems and processes. You will begin by conducting an internal review of their existing financial procedures, systems and controls, before making recommendations for best practice, installing a clear and user friendly system and training staff in its use.

They currently use excel and manual cashbooks; they have purchased QuickBooks but have not managed to switch to the system to date. You will be assessing and advising on their readiness for either this software or the continued use of excel.  A part-time Accountant works for them, but has limited capacity and your work will involve supporting her development. You will also be working with the founders who would like training in how to oversee and check finance.
