As in past years, we believe that our most effective means of finding suitable candidates for our specific vacancies is by reaching out to colleagues and those who are familiar with the IFRS Foundation and its unique work. I am now writing to ask whether you are able to suggest candidates, for a number of vacancies arising within the following:
1. Trustee(s) of the IFRS Foundation; and
2. Member(s) of the International Accounting Standards Board (the Board).
Until the last stages of the Structure and Effectiveness review are concluded following consultation of Constitutional changes, the precise geographic locations of the vacancies for both the Board and Trustees will not be finalised. Nevertheless, we would like to commence our recruitment process now and, therefore, invite applications and nominations from all regions. By the time we are ready to appoint, the consultation period will be closed. For further information please see the Summary of the Trustees meeting which will be available here shortly.
I attach a copy of the job specification and advert, which gives full details of both of the roles. We would appreciate that any names you suggest should be supported by a CV and any other relevant background details. As previously, the advert will be placed with the Economist on-line and digital and on the IFRS Foundation website.
A response to Jill Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 8 July 2016 would be much appreciated.
