The IFRS Foundation is an unusual, stimulating and challenging place to work. We have around 140 staff, mainly based in London and Tokyo, drawn from over 30 nationalities covering roles in technical, operational, and support functions.
Owing to the volume of applications received, we are not able to respond to each one individually so if you have not heard from us within a month of the closing date for a particular vacancy you should assume that you have not been successful on that occasion.
Most of our roles are permanent appointments; some are filled on a one or two year basis; some are undertaken by secondees from industry or the accounting profession; a small number by academics on sabbatical. Read more about secondments
On this page we list any current vacancies that are available. There are certain roles that we regularly recruit for, such as Technical Managers (5 years experience required), Assistant Technical Managers (3 years experience) and Technical Associates – for which we particularly welcome applications from suitably qualified individuals. Full details are provided whenever we have a specific vacancy, but we are always pleased to receive CVs at other times for any of these Technical roles.
