The organisation performs and teaches Brazilian Samba drumming across Nigeria to provide access to the creative arts and to empower young people to become agents for change in their communities. The workshops offer a space to embrace creativity; learn valuable key skills, like leadership, confidence and teamwork; and to grow together. The children and young people who attend their free workshops are from a wide range of social, ethnic and religious backgrounds.

You will be reviewing their progress, providing further training as needed. This placement will be heavy on training to further build their system and capacity to manage it internally.

They have a new Project Coordinator & Logistics Manager who would benefit from some more training in excel. With the wider team you will also be advising on payroll procedures for salaries being paid internationally, creating a financial procedures manual, training staff on how to create annual financial statements and monthly reconciliations.

There is also scope to support with fundraising. While fundraising sits separately to finance, our volunteers can offer assistance by creating budgets and presenting financial information for the fundraising proposals.
