About the role

Team: IT Infrastructure team
Reports to: IT Director

On 3 November 2021, the IFRS Foundation Trustees announced the creation of a new standard-setting board—the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB). The ISSB builds on the success of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) as well as the work of the Climate Disclosure Standards Board and the Value Reporting Foundation (formerly IIRC and SASB), which both consolidated with the IFRS Foundation in 2022. The addition of the new board has taken the Foundation from a ‘one board/two locations’ organisation to a ‘two boards/several locations’ organisation (with offices across multiple time zones, including San Francisco, Montreal, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo) with a significant increase in overall headcount.

The IT Infrastructure team is primarily based in London, but operates globally with members of the team in San Francisco, Montreal and London. The IT Support Technician, Frankfurt will be joining a team of 9 and will be the first member of the team to operate in our new offices in Frankfurt. The role reports to the IT director, who is based in London.

The IT Support Technician will work as part of the Foundation’s Technology team responsible for Technology service delivery at its new office in Frankfurt as well as providing support for staff around the world.
