Established by the Financial Stability Board in June 2014, the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) is a not-for-profit organization created to support the implementation and use of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI). GLEIF manages a network of partners, the LEI issuing organizations, to provide trusted services and open, reliable data for unique legal entity identification worldwide. GLEIF services ensure the operational integrity of the Global LEI System and facilitate making the LEI a broad public good available on our website. As a result, the LEI remains the industry standard best suited to providing open and reliable data for unique legal entity identification management.
The Communication Manager is part of the Communications team and responsible for dedicated topics of GLEIF’s external and internal communications program, supporting the Head of Global Corporate Communication and in cooperation with the business stakeholders. We seek an individual with the ambition and skill to evolve GLEIF’s communications program for the newly developed service on verifiable credentials (vLEI). The vLEI is a digitally verifiable credential containing the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI). The vLEI framework creates a cryptographically secure chain of trust that replaces the manual processes conventionally required to access and confirm an entity’s LEI data. GLEIF is to extend the Global LEI System to create a fully digitized LEI service, capable of enabling instant and automated identity verification between counterparties operating across all industry sectors, globally.
