Background

Our partner believes that every child, no matter where they were born, should receive quality education and care. They are working with impoverished and disadvantaged communities in Phnom Penh through education, healthcare and by giving them the tools to build a better future.

An accelerated Education Programme focuses on giving children the opportunity to complete two years of ‘standard’ education in just one year, while a Football Programme is used to educate and support marginalised communities.

Your Role

You will begin with an internal review of their existing financial procedures, systems and controls in place. You will be making recommendations for best practice appropriate to the resources and capacity of the Cambodian team. They would like your review to help streamline and ease the workload for the finance team. You will also be providing coaching to build their capacity. They are being audited for the first time in Cambodia in May 2019 (previous audits have been in the UK), the report will be shared with you.

They made the switch to Sage 50 Professional in 2018 and use this alongside excel. The finance team have previously only used QuickBooks and would benefit from a review of how they are using the system and further training on it. Their current system is robust but laborious, involving much manual input and duplication between excel and Sage. You will be helping to streamline, improve and automate the process.
