TWT Internal Audit and Backoffice Accounting Consultancy Jobs in Kenya

The Organization

  • The Water Trust empowers rural communities in Uganda to reduce preventable death and debilitating disease by enabling access to safe water and a healthy, clean environment.

  • Since 2008, The Water Trust has partnered with more than 500 communities in Masindi and Kiryandongo, benefitting more than 250,000 people.

  • The Water Trust aims to increase the scale of its operations and pioneer new approaches to increasing the impact and sustainability of water, sanitation, and hygiene programs.

    The Opportunity

  • The Water Trust seeks an accounting firm with experience managing grants from USAID, EU, and comparable institutions for a retainer consultancy focused on internal audit and bookkeeping of small US entity (1 person), consolidated monthly reporting, and annual coordination with an external US audit agency. This consultancy would include testing compliance of financial data, reports, documentation, and draft donor financial reports (~8 per year) with organizational policy and grant agreements. The Water Trust typically has $800,000 to $900,000 in annual expenses, 5 to 7 active restricted grants, and a staff of 24 employees.

  • We anticipate this work will be done remotely with the exception of agreed-upon meetings and physical spot checks. We anticipate that this work will take approximately 5 days per quarter and an additional 5 days per year for special
    projects (e.g., initial orientation on policies, budget development quality assurance, audit support) for a total of 25 days over a 12 month period. We expect that a senior accounting expert will lead the internal audit while a mid-career professional bookkeeper will handle the US activities. This firm will work closely with the Executive Director based in the US on the US entity elements and the Uganda Finance and Operations Manager and Country Director on the Uganda internal audit work.

    US Bookkeeping Requirements:

  • 50-100 journal entries per year, with a monthly average of 5 items over the past year

  • Reconciliation of 650-700 bank transactions with a monthly average of 55 items over the past year.

  • Monthly management report in a consolidated (US and Uganda financials) format
