Accounting for International Development (AfID) offers volunteer assignments for accountants and auditors across the UK, Africa, Asia & South America including Trustee/Treasurer roles and financial capacity building placements from 2 to 12 weeks.
Our partner creates and distributes educational films raising awareness about a range of health, community development and environmental issues.
Additionally, they use film to give local communities a voice; they train individuals in filmmaking techniques, offering them the opportunity to identify, address and disseminate information about crucial issues affecting their communities.
They are seeking to recruit a Treasurer to take the place of the existing incumbent who is due to retire in December. The successful candidate will be responsible for:
- The oversight of the finances of the charity, ensuring that the charity has effective financial measures, controls and procedures in place; and that they are meeting their statutory and tax compliance requirements.
- Preparing the monthly management accounts, the annual accounts & budgets
- Reporting to the Board of Trustees at regular intervals about the financial position of the charity.
This is quite a hands on opportunity for an experienced accountant / finance professional to provide financial oversight and governance to a small organisation with an international focus. As this is quite an involved role, they anticipate that it will require a commitment of approximately 10 hours per month for the accounting, financial management & reporting, and an additional 2-3 hours per month if also doing the bookkeeping. There will be around 10 meetings (board meetings, management meetings and ad hoc strategy days) a year.
