INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION FOR ETHICS AND AUDIT
Serving the public interest internationally through independent, high-quality ethics, audit, and assurance standards that inspire confidence in corporate information and the world’s economies
Working at the Foundation
Working for the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) and the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) provides a rich and diverse experience through opportunities to enhance the quality of global audit and ethics standards 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 audit and accountancy professions.
Working directly with IAASB and IESBA members, staff also have opportunities to engage with senior leaders within the global regulatory and standard-setting communities, governments, investors, preparers, 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 both standard-setting boards, as well as the global accountancy community and a wide and diversified range of external stakeholders, and includes opportunities to travel internationally.
Generally, permanent positions are based in New York, USA.
