I am currently recruiting on behalf of a regulatory body based in Central London. They are recruiting a Project Manager on a permanent basis.

Your new role

This role provides an exciting opportunity to be part of the team being set up to support the work of the UK Endorsement Board to assess IFRS for application by UK entities, influence the development of IFRS and undertake thought-leadership activities to contribute to the international development of financial reporting.

The role involves contributing to allocated projects. This may include projects that are part of the IASB's due process, involve the assessment of new or amended IFRS for UK endorsement or research projects. A Project Manager will usually work in a small project team (unless the project is very small).

The role involves:

  • Following the IASB's discussions, assisting with the analysis of the IASB's proposals and decisions, as well as assisting with identifying issues and concerns and the development of solutions and technical arguments to support the analysis.
  • Preparing and presenting high-quality technical papers for the Endorsement Board once established, as part of a project team and under the supervision of the Technical Director, and revising as appropriate, within project deadlines.
  • Assisting with the gathering of desk-based evidence and assessing stakeholders' views on the project, using formal and informal means as appropriate through-out the project.
  • Preparing or providing input for impact assessments appropriate to the stage of the project.
  • Helping prepare and participating in presentations to stakeholders.

What do I need?

A relevant professional qualification and the ideal candidates will have:

  • Knowledge of the financial reporting environment of listed companies and a demonstrable interest in IFRS.
  • Ideally, experience in technical accounting work or the ability to demonstrate a clear interest in these activities.

What do I get return?

You will be paid a salary of 49000 per annum, plus excellent benefits working for a well-recognised regulatory body.

What do I need to do now?

Please send your CV through ASAP.
