The organisation has grown in recent years, upscaling its activities and increasing staff. They now have several donors that require difference finance and audit requirements. The department has some experienced staff but lacks someone with the strategic and financial experience to guide them. They are therefore looking for an Interim Finance Manager to review and improve systems, controls and processes, identifying gaps and strengthening the accounting function.
As the Interim Finance Manager your role will be to improve the quality of financial management. You will supervise 4 staff in the accounts office, 2 interns, 2 cashiers and a stores officer.

Your role will play a critical part in partnering with top management in strategic decision making and operations as the organisation continues to enhance its quality programming and build capacity.
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.
