Life at the Standard-Setting Boards

Working for the international standard-setting boards provide a rich and diverse experience through the opportunity to enhance the quality of global audit and assurance, ethics for professional accountants  and public sector accounting practice in the public interest. Staff have the opportunity to develop a global, public-interest oriented perspective on contemporary, real-world issues and significantly contribute to leading-edge standard-setting projects, thereby enhancing international public trust in the accountancy profession. Staff also have the opportunity to engage with senior leaders of the accountancy profession, the global regulatory and standards-setting communities, government, investor, preparer, governance and other international stakeholder groups.

Daily life features working in a dynamic, collaborative, multi-cultural and collegial environment including fostering relationships with colleagues across all three international standard-setting boards, the global accountancy community, and IFAC and includes opportunities to travel internationally.

Generally, all positions are based in New York, USA, except for positions that support the IPSASB, which is based in our Toronto, Canada office.
