Job Details

Our partner is an international development NGO, working with vulnerable and excluded street-connected children, helping them to grow and develop so that they can reach their potential, and reduce the abuse and discrimination that they suffer.

They are seeking a new Treasurer to provide oversight and direction on the finances and risk management of the organisation.

The post holder will work closely with the Finance Manager, who works 12 hours a week, to ensure that the board is adequately informed on financial and risk management issues to run the charity effectively. The Treasurer will also work closely with the Chairman, the CEO and wider and management team to see that appropriate controls are in place.

The role requires a total time commitment of approximately 2 days per month, with board meetings every other month and executive committee meetings monthly. Meetings are currently held remotely, but the intention is to revert back to face-to-face meetings in London post-pandemic although some remote attendance will remain an option.

Please note that this is a voluntary position and therefore unremunerated.

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).
