Not-for-profit organisation supporting disadvantaged children and young adults
Our partner supports disadvantaged children and young adults to reach their full potential. Their education programmes are designed to provide opportunity, resources and tailored support to marginalised groups.
You will begin with an internal audit of their accounting procedures, systems and controls. You will be making recommendations for best practice, taking into account the capacity and resources of the team and starting to implement some improvements, providing training to staff.
They have asked that you review the delegation of duties in the finance team, helping to reorganise and streamline. Vietnamese regulations require heavily bureaucratic procedures and with multiple projects spreading across rural areas the team are finding it hard to keep accurate and complete records. The Head of Finance is overburdened with paperwork which detracts from her capacity for strategy. They are also working with accounts in multiple currencies. You will be building team capacity, reviewing internal controls and introducing more strategic analysis, including cash management and an analysis of their various revenue streams.
