I am an accountant and currently a stay at home mum. My children are all grown up and I am looking to keep busy while earning some money. I have been engaged as an Accountant for 18 years for different organisations in Kenya (some international organisation such as Freedom House and IREX). I have been in permanent employment with a few local freelance / consulting jobs. I would like to excel further into the field of accounting and finance by looking for jobs outside Kenya. I am pretty confident in my skills as an accountant.
