About the role

Reports to: XML Publishing Specialist

The team
There are currently 7 members of the Production team. The team is responsible for producing, maintaining and managing IFRS Foundation content in DITA XML through to our content management system (AEM). This position works closely with an XML Publishing Specialist and other members of the Production team to produce and quality assure content in several formats. Content includes IFRS Accounting Standards and the new IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards, as well as associated due process material.

Given the formation of the ISSB, the Production team has seen a considerable increase in the number of documents requiring their much-respected services. It is important for the team to maintain the highest quality level of business-as-usual activities, which has prompted the need for another Assistant Systems and Data Analyst to join the team.
