Job Details

Our partner represents some of the most marginalised people in the UK, working in the area of asylum support law to reduce the destitution of asylum seekers by defending their legal rights to food and shelter.

They are looking to appoint a Deputy Treasurer to join their Management Committee and support the work of the Treasurer and Finance & Operations Officer.

The post holder will have a strong understanding of budgeting, forecasting and reporting financial information to decision-making boards, ideally with a good working knowledge of charity finance. They are particularly interested in receiving applications from refugees and others who have had direct experience of the UK's asylum system.

The Management Committee meets every other month, primarily remotely but occasionally in London. The Deputy Treasurer will also be required to attend the Finance Subcommittee, which meets a maximum of four times a year.

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

Company

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).
