Working at EFRAG can be a step in your career or part of your career in standard setting. We offer various possibilities including: being an EFRAG employee, being seconded by your firm or company or working under as part-time service provider.
What is EFRAG?
EFRAG is the leading European force in the global financial reporting debate. It was established in 2001 by European stakeholder organisations with an interest in financial reporting, representing the business community, investors and the accountancy profession. EFRAG’s activities are aimed at ensuring that European views on the development of financial reporting standards are properly and clearly articulated in the international standard-setting process, so that ultimately IFRS are fit for Europe. Following the implementation of the reform in 2014, EFRAG’s activities include assessing whether the IFRS proposals/requirements are conducive to the European public good and impact assessments. This includes the interaction with economic concerns such as financial stability and economic growth. EFRAG works closely with the IASB, National Standard Setters and European stakeholder organisations, in Europe and worldwide.
Why join EFRAG?
Joining EFRAG represents a unique opportunity to acquire or develop further insider knowledge and understanding of the standards that are being developed by the IASB and which are due to be implemented by European companies. EFRAG’s offices are located in Brussels, at the heart of Europe. Working at EFRAG will give you the opportunity to discuss IFRS issues at a high level, with European experts and IASB representatives.
There are various possibilities to become our colleague: permanent employee, seconded by your current employer. The latter allows accounting firms or other companies to further train their financial reporting professionals to develop high-level technical knowledge in a European and international context. Another possibility would be on a part-time service provision basis. We would be happy to examine the various possibilities with you.
Working at EFRAG offers an attractive step in your career or can be part of your career in standard setting. Our former colleagues are at present active in a wide range of professional activities with audit firms, companies, banks, standard setters and authorities. What they have all in common, is their knowledge, expertise and experience in financial reporting and IFRS.
What would you do at EFRAG?
You will be involved in research and analyses, supporting EFRAG's activities to influence the IFRS developments in the most proactive way and leading to the publication of EFRAG comment letters, discussion papers or endorsement advices to the European Commission. Under the supervision of the EFRAG Technical Director and Research Director, you will work on various projects in small teams.
