Skills

You're passionate about accuracy
You know the devil is in the detail. You love that satisfying feeling when all the 'i's are dotted and the 't's are crossed and every column of numbers adds up, just so.

                                                                                                                                    

You're not only driven -- you can drive your own boat
You work independently. You're a self-starter -- even if no one else were in the office, you'd work just as hard and just as meticulously.

 

You know the tools
You know how to best use Microsoft Excel and online tools to utilize time wisely. You enjoy cleaning, reconciling, entering, sorting and updating spreadsheets. And you leave breadcrumbs so others could figure out how you got the job done.

 

You have experience and education to back you up. 
You're a student or recent grad. You have accounting classes and previous administrative work under your belt.

Commitment

You'll start in August and work through the Fall with a flexible end date. We'll need you for at least two days a week (minimum 15 hours).

Compensation

This is an unpaid internship - but is an exceptional opportunity to gain experience at an international non-profit with an ambitious mission. We will gladly work with your institution to give you academic credit for your experience.
