IAASA welcomes applications for the following roles:
1. Head of Financial Reporting Quality Unit
The primary function of IAASA’s Financial Reporting Quality (‘FRQ’) Unit is to examine the compliance of certain entities’ periodic financial reporting with relevant reporting frameworks, i.e. applicable accounting standards (in the main IFRS) and relevant legislation. The Unit is also responsible for liaising with other countries’ financial reporting and enforcement bodies and fora, including the European Enforcer Coordination Sessions. The Head of FRQ will lead a small team in the achievement of these functions, and develop the Unit in a period of significant changes in accounting and auditing oversight.
The successful candidate will be a member of an Irish Recognised Accountancy Body with significant and extensive technical experience in the application of financial reporting standards (IFRS and/or Irish/UK GAAP). The successful candidate will ideally have operated at a senior level in a large accountancy firm/practice, experience in managing and developing a team of professional staff, confidence and capacity to challenge senior executives within significant corporate entities and the ability to develop and maintain relationships with key stakeholders.
2. Project Manager - Financial Reporting Quality Unit
Working as part of a small team of committed and highly motivated professionals, the successful candidate will have responsibility for a diverse range of projects and assignments relating to the functions of the FRQ Unit set out above. S/he will be a member of an Irish Recognised Accountancy Body with post qualification experience at a suitably senior level in areas of relevance to the role (e.g. audit, financial reporting or in an associated enforcement environment), and will possess extensive knowledge of financial reporting standards.
3. Audit Inspectors
The role of an Audit Inspector is to inspect the quality of the audits of Public Interest Entities as well as the internal quality control processes of the major audit firms. An inspector will participate in on-site inspections of the major audit firms dealing with senior staff and partners at those firms. The successful candidate(s) will be a qualified accountant(s) and will have substantial and recent experience at audit manager level or above auditing listed companies or other major entities, preferably in a large audit firm. The current vacancies are for inspectors with specialist experience in the areas of IT audit, data analytics and life insurance.
