About

Looking to invest your time and talents in a way that makes a lasting impact? By providing your expertise finance to Circle of Peace International (COPI), you can ensure that orphans and low-income students in Africa get the key to a better life: a quality education.

COPI is the outgrowth of one woman’s determination to provide a better life for children in her hometown, Makindye, Uganda. In 1994 Joanita Senoga, a second grade public school teacher, could no longer abide her school’s practice of expelling children for failure to pay school fees. She started a school that provides education to children who want to learn -- irrespective of their ability to pay.

COPI is searching for an Auditor (Financial Reviewer) with expertise in nonprofit finance. The Auditor will work with the Finance Team and the Board of Directors to ensure that the organization’s financials are accurate. This position reports to the Director of Finance. Duties include: Determine compliance with established internal control procedures by examining records, reports, operating practices, and documentation. Complete audit work papers by documenting audit tests and findings. Appraise adequacy of internal control systems by completing audit questionnaires. Maintain internal control systems by updating audit programs and questionnaires; recommending new policies and procedures. Communicate audit findings by preparing a final report. Comply with federal, state, and local security legal requirements by studying existing and new security legislation; enforcing adherence to requirements; advising management on needed actions. Prepare special audit and control reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing operating information and trends.

The Auditor must be a person with excellent attention to detail, who can carry out responsibilities in a timely manner, and who has the ability to follow up with team members to ensure their assignments are being carried out. An appreciation for the mission, vision and values of Circle of Peace International and Circle of Peace School is a must. Familiarity with the nonprofit sector would be a plus. We seek a person residing in the Richmond, VA area. The length of this assignment is no more than two months.

If you fit this bill, we would love to hear from you. Just think, if all children in low-income countries could acquire basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty. What better way to invest your time and talents!
