Unique opportunity for an adventurous accountant (ACCA/ICAEW - or equivalent) looking to gain international experience & build financial management capacity of pioneering organisation in Zambia. (Flights & Accommodation provided)

Based in Zambia’s vibrant capital, Lusaka, our partner is a young family run business, founded to help communities tackle the prevalence of micronutrient malnutrition which contributes to premature death, illness and reduced productivity.

Their vision is to produce food with high nutritional value, using locally sourced ingredients and manufacturing. Partnering with NGOs, they identify and train local agents to distribute their nutritious foods such as fortified instant noodles and porridges on a large scale to rural communities.

They are in their start up stage and still to make a net profit. The company is accessing grant funding to continue to push the nutrition agenda.

Your Role

They are seeking an experienced accountant to support them in developing internal procedures, formal finance policies, donor reporting & grant management. You will begin by conducting an internal review of their existing procedures, systems and controls and making and implementing your recommendations for best practice.

This broad and wide-ranging assignment is a great opportunity for accountants thinking about a career move to the international development sector to get an extensive insight in just a couple of months.
