Background

Based in scenic Malawi, our partner is a development, relief and advocacy organisation, working to support local projects to improve the quality of life and create positive, long-term change for some of the world’s poorest communities.

A Pro Bono Accountant is sought to visit and support three Malawian non-profits based in Chikwawa, Blantyre and Nsanje, which provide education programmes on the following:

  • Literacy and health education for rural adolescent girls and boys
  • Health and nutrition, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention
  • Climate change adaption and related hazards

Your Role

Your role will be to undertake an assessment of their accounting & financial management systems, making and implementing recommendations on best practice based on the complexity of their finances, the resources available to the organisation and skillset of the local staff.

If you are a qualified accountant looking to transition into the international development sector, this opportunity could provide the invaluable insight and relevant international experience you need to make that next career move.
