INDONESIA | Pro Bono Consultant @ Ocean and Environmental Protection Non-Profit | 2-4 Months
Based on the beautiful Indonesian Island, Bali, famous for its iconic beaches and coral reefs, our partner works to keep the oceans free from waste, educate communities and protect the local environment.
Their Community Environment and Skills Centre is already leading beach clean ups and providing educational programmes for schools, local government and businesses on waste management, recycling and composting.
The organisation is now in need of professional accounting expertise to help them continue in this vital work. The finance staff have not always been qualified or stayed long with the organisation. Their accountant is a graduate from the organisation’s education programme and although she is doing her best, she has not studied accounting beyond high school level. Therefore a financial expert is needed to provide the training, coaching and guidance required to enable her to reach her full potential.
Your role will begin with an internal review of our partner’s current financial systems, procedures and controls before implementing your recommendations for best practice. In particular, the organisation would like to develop their financial policy and introduce monitoring procedures.
This voluntary assignment is a unique opportunity to apply your professional skills in an international development setting, significantly contribute to the support and development of local staff and have a lasting impact. If you are a qualified accountant, looking to make a difference and gain relevant international experience to help you transition into the sector, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.
