Job Details

Our partner provides leadership development programmes, opportunities and funding for education to nurture the leadership development of women changemakers across Asia.

The charity is at an exciting point in their development and are looking to strengthen their board with a number of new Trustees, including a Treasurer, with a demonstrated commitment to gender equity and women’s leadership.

The post holder will bring experience and expertise in financial management and accounting, and a familiarity with charity financial management and systems. The Treasurer will guide and advise the organisation on financial affairs, bringing a finance perspective into board discussions, and providing robust financial oversight.

Board meetings are held online quarterly, and with a globally distributed team, including a Foundation in Thailand and NGO in Cambodia, there is also a requirement to work alongside board members from these entities.

Please note that this is a volunteer role and there is therefore no remuneration.


For more Trustee/Treasurer roles please visit the AfID website.


Accounting for International Development (AfID) offers every type of accountant, from anywhere in the world the opportunity to use their skills to support a broad range of non-profit organisations globally. Volunteer assignments of between 2 weeks and 12 months, &/or longer permanent placements, form part of our ongoing strategy to build the financial management capacity of charities in over 50 countries. 

AfID have now arranged assignments for over 1000 accountants from over 50 countries, providing over 250,000 hours of one to one support to more than 500 non-profit partners.

Our partners, which are a blend of international charities and grassroot NGOs, such as street child centres, hospitals, micro-finance institutions, conservation projects, women’s empowerment programmes and schools, are all doing amazing work to tackle extreme poverty and inequality but due to limited resources are unable to access vital financial management training.

The main focus of all AfID assignments is to develop the skills, confidence and potential of local people, enabling organisations to ultimately have the financial management capacity they need to deliver more sustainable programmes to their many beneficiaries, whilst maintaining good relations with their donors. Volunteers could be budgeting with a street child centre in Kampala (Uganda), coaching a hospital bookkeeper in Kigali (Rwanda) or financial reporting for a primary school in Kathmandu (Nepal).
