In late 2021 Self Help Africa (SHA) and United Purpose (UP) merged. The two organisations – one headquartered in Ireland and the other in Wales – implement projects to end extreme hunger and poverty.
This merger doubled our size and reach – and means that in 2023 we are implementing poverty eradication projects in 17 countries, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa. Collectively, we are also part of a group that includes social enterprise subsidiaries Partner Africa, TruTrade and CUMO Microfinance.
In 2023 our work will reach more than six million people and invest in the region of €50m in more than 100 development programmes designed to improve food systems, facilitate access to markets and financial services, combat climate change, gender inequality, and improve access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
This is an exciting time to join us as we unite two like-minded and entrepreneurial organisations seeking to tackle the global challenges in progressive and innovative ways.
The Programme Finance Accountant will provide financial oversight and support to a number of countries. The post holder will also work with the Global Finance Team to improve the quality of systems of financial control and reporting in the country offices while capacity building local finance staff in the performance of their responsibilities.
