Non-governmental organization offering wildlife rescue and release service


Ban Keun, Laos

2-4 months

Our partner provide a multi-species rescue service which spans country wide, working amidst prominent illegal wildlife trade routes. They run a 24/7 hotline and work with the government on large scale confiscations. Alongside this service they also run a sanctuary for those animals that cannot be released.

Our partner would like to build a more robust system for the Trust going forward. You will be conducting an internal review of their existing financial procedures, systems and controls, and you will be making recommendations for best practice and installing a clear and user friendly system, training staff on its use.

Our partner use excel and manual cashbooks; they have purchased QuickBooks but have not managed to switch to the system. You will be assessing and advising on their readiness for either this software or the continued use of excel. A part-time Accountant based in Vientiane works for them, but has limited capacity: your work will likely involve a couple of trips to support her. You will also be working with the founders who would like training in how to oversee and check finance.
