What is available?

We provide ongoing support to over 500 organisations in over 50 countries, so there will be many exciting possibilities available to you. All our assignments are customised to closely meet the volunteer’s own personal preferences and unique circumstances. Assignments can be as short as 2 weeks, and as long as 12 months, and each one forms a part of our ongoing strategy to build the financial management capacity of charities. 

Our experienced programmes team will create up to three assignment options from our many partner organisations, each one individually tailored to your own unique personal profile. Focus areas will be aligned with your skills and experience, be it day-to-day accounting, financial reporting, budgeting, audit or more strategic planning & management. Assignment options will also take into account your preferred travel dates and assignment length, favourite locations (subject to availability), your budget and interests you may have in the programmes or beneficiaries of our partner charities.

In the majority of cases you be part of an essential long-term programme of support coaching local staff; focussing on scope of works created by previous AfID volunteers, the partner organisations management team and their donors.
