UK Endorsement Board announces recruitment campaign to establish key advisory groups

09 March 2022

The UK Endorsement Board (UKEB) has launched a campaign to recruit over 50 advisory group members to input into the UKEB’s technical decision-making and international influencing work.

 
The six advisory groups will be comprised of 8-12 members with each group representing a key stakeholder constituency.  
 
The four standing advisory groups, which will be chaired by Board Members, will be:
  • Academic Advisory Group
  • Accounting Firms & Institutes Advisory Group
  • Investor Advisory Group 
  • Preparer Advisory Group 
 
The closing date for applications, for the Accounting Firms & Institutes Advisory Group and the Investor Advisory Group, which are the first to be launched, is 5 April 2022.
 
The UKEB will also be establishing two ad hoc advisory groups which will be chaired by senior members of the Secretariat:
  • Financial Institutions Advisory Group
  • Rate Regulated Activities Advisory Group
Campaigns to recruit members for the two ad hoc groups will commence after the recruitment of the standing groups has been completed.
 
The Chair of the UKEB Pauline Wallace said:
 
The UK has always played a leading role in the development of international accounting standards and we want to draw on the diverse skills and expertise of UK stakeholders to inform our influencing and adoption work. Advisory groups will play an important role in supporting the technical decision making of the UKEB. The UKEB is keen to ensure advisory group members comprise a diverse range of skills, experience and backgrounds, and welcomes applications from all interested parties.”
 
Further information on the roles and how to apply can be found on the UKEB website here.
