Our partner is a tech-based social enterprise developing innovative solutions to healthcare concerns. They focus on children and improving their access to effective healthcare. They are currently designing technology to diagnose pneumonia in young children which is the cause of many infant deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa.

They have requested support to help them to better manage their grants and investment. You will be starting by conducting an internal review of their existing accounting system, procedures and controls and making improvements. They have started to implement procedures as best they can but are aware that they do so without the financial experience.

You will be helping to install a robust and user-friendly system and training staff to maintain it. They would also like assistance with financial planning, cash management, audit preparation, financial control and grant reporting. You will be working primarily with their CEO and Finance Manager, who does not have accountancy experience but is currently studying an MBA.

Affordable accommodation available.
