Requirements of the role

The role involves delivering allocated projects.

  • Engaging with the international debate including the IASB’s proposals and decisions, identifying and analysing any issues and concerns, and developing solutions, together with relevant technical arguments to support your analysis.
  • Gathering evidence and assessing stakeholders’ views on the project and any proposals e.g. by performing desk-based research on the existing material, outreach with stakeholders and other standard setters, using formal and informal means as appropriate. This may include presentations to stakeholders.
  •  Preparing and presenting high-quality technical papers for the UKEB, discussing them with the project team and Technical Director, and revising them as appropriate, within project deadlines.
  • Developing draft comment letters and draft Endorsement Criteria Assessments for input from the UK Endorsement Board and for public comment.
  • Preparing impact assessments and Feedback Statements, as appropriate to the stage of the project.
  • A Project Director may also be required to act as Secretariat lead of an Advisory Group or working group.
