Job Description

We are a registered charity, looking for a volunteer who might be able to assist us for a few days each month updating our accounting system.

We started the charity in 2005 and support some of the world's poorest people by providing training out of poverty. Last year with the support of UNESCO we gave 4-month residential training to over 200 people who are now bringing income to their families and vital services to their local communities, such as tailoring, carpentry, bicycle repairs etc. We have no paid staff in the UK but have a small team of paid staff in Malawi.

We currently use a product, endorsed by ICAEW members, namely Donations and Finance Coordinator which we use for our UK accounting. 

We have a finance team in Malawi who look after accounts there, using QuickBooks. So our requirement in the UK is mainly for registering donations as we have very few UK expenses, no payroll, rent, utilities etc.

Our current accountant is a recent graduate who is now taking on full-time employment and no longer has the time to support us. So we need to find a replacement from January 2021 onwards.

The role can be undertaken at your home or at our office in Surbiton, Surrey. Full training on the software will be provided. Opportunities to visit and see our work in Malawi are also encouraged.
