They help identify improvements to internal controls as appropriate. Overall, they accompany the Senior Manager of Finance & Operations in their duties and provide a helping hand wherever they can. In addition to their finance work, the Accounting Officer may support other areas needing administrative support across the organisation, time-permitting.
You are familiar with accounting standards and are excited to apply them to an organization that supports international cooperation. You are enthusiastic about taking on a variety of tasks and will take pride in seeing them through. You bring experience with accounting software (we use QuickBooks Online) and are comfortable using standard MS Office Tools, Teams, and SharePoint. You love working with others and helping them complete their tasks, and you are polite and approachable. You have a keen eye for systems and process improvements and have no problem using your high organizational skills to get things done quickly. You are excited to learn more about project finance and administration in a small non-profit organization and are keen to grow your skills.
If you speak French, you will be an even greater asset to the team, but even simply an interest in improving your French skills will go a long way with our staff, vendors, and partners.
