In the Field
NGOs recruit experienced and qualified finance staff to work in the field - either to run/oversee systems themselves, or to work with a local counterpart. These crucial roles help ensure funds are spent effectively and accounted for properly. Field based positions may be in capital cities, regional centres or remote rural locations. On average we are working on 10-20 field vacancies at any one time.
