Job Description

Accounting for International Development (AfID) offers volunteer assignments for accountants and auditors across the UK, Africa, Asia & South America including Trustee/Treasurer roles and financial capacity building placements from 2 to 12 weeks.


Our partner works closely with people to ensure their work creates lasting change and helps them to lift their whole family and community out of poverty. They fund their programmes with innovative businesses alongside traditional fundraising.

Every programme that they design has two aims. It should improve the lives of children for the long term and it should also teach the organisation how to work better. They want to one day become a research and development hub for the sector - so they're all about collecting evidence and testing ideas.

They are looking for a volunteer to help with ad-hoc accounting and tax support, ideally for a few hours a month (i.e. to come to the office for a morning or afternoon at a time).

Their questions tend to relate to general accounting (e.g. checking end of year adjustments, queries about how to treat unusual transactions), VAT (including TOMs), and intercompany/group accounting.

Knowledge/experience of board governance, budgeting and internal financial processes would also be helpful.

Time Commitment:

  • 1/2 a day per month

Travel and lunch expenses covered.
