IFAC: Serve on the Global Stage with Leaders from Around the World

Strong, relevant, global accounting standards are vital to the public interest, maintaining market stability and good governance across all public and private economic sectors.

Now is your chance to apply to join one of the four international accounting standard-setting boards helping to drive transparent, accountable and growing global economy.

We’re looking for exceptional individuals—experienced professionals and experts from all backgrounds, disciplines and regions—to join the four international standard-setting boards:

  • International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB)
  • International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB)
  • International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA)
  • International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB)

The three-year term will commence January 1, 2019. Relevant subject-matter knowledge, strong English language skills, and a commitment to international travel approximately four times a year is a must. Travel support is available to qualified candidates.

Gender equality is especially important and nominations of strong female candidates are strongly encouraged. Although candidates are ultimately selected based on professional background and experience, nominations from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Middle East are particularly welcome to promote greater diversity on each board.

Please submit your application online by February 15, 2018 online.
