About the role

Job Purpose: Work in a team to implement the Foundation’s global marketing strategy to raise awareness of our Accounting products and services and support revenue generation.

The organisation

The IFRS Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established to develop—in the public interest—high-quality, understandable, enforceable and globally accepted standards for general purpose financial reporting and to promote and facilitate their adoption.

The standards—IFRS® Accounting Standards and IFRS® Sustainability Disclosure Standards—are set by the Foundation’s standard-setting bodies, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the newly formed International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB). IFRS Accounting Standards are required in more than 140 jurisdictions.

The two boards are overseen by the IFRS Foundation Trustees, who in turn are accountable to a Monitoring Board of public authorities. In November 2021, the Trustees announced the creation of the ISSB and the consolidation of the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) and the Value Reporting Foundation (VRF) into the Foundation. This process was completed on 1 August 2022 and 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.
