Job Description

Based in mountainous Southern Laos, our partner works with rural and indigenous communities to help them develop their own potential, through education and/or livelihoods, whilst conserving the environment. They are seeking an experienced auditor to support them for 3 weeks in Feb/Mar 2019.

There has been an increased momentum in their work, and team morale has been high. They have started a new bamboo project, where local farmers are harvesting bamboo stems, using the shoots for food and the bamboo for building materials for making decorative items. They have been strengthening their accounting processes and financial controls and have recently become a sub-grantee for an organisation based in Chiang Mai with other ongoing proposals to international donors.

You will be the fifth AfID volunteer to support this organisation. They have requested the following assistance: 1) support the finance team (coaching them on improved approaches/methods of audit preparation) prepare for the audit, and then continue for about a week following the audit in order to 2) advise and support the capacity development of the local audit firm, 3) to provide support with the execution of the audit and then, 4) the preparation of the partner’s audit reports.
