The GBCA is recruiting for Green Star Certified Assessor roles, for the Green Star – Performance rating tool. Multiple positions are available.
This is your chance to be at the forefront of green building in Australia!
The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA), a national not-for-profit organisation, is the leading authority on green building and actively promotes the development of sustainable, affordable and liveable buildings, communities and cities.
In 2003, the GBCA launched Australia’s only voluntary environmental rating system for the built environment – Green Star. Green Star evaluates the attributes of buildings and communities based on environmental categories such as energy and water efficiency, indoor environment quality and materials.
You are a building professional with a keen interest in sustainability and will have had experience with the Green Star rating system. Using your high-level technical understanding of green building design, construction and operation, you are an excellent communicator, have the ability to be thorough, objective and consistent in judgement, and are reliable, punctual and have the ability to prepare for meetings in advance.
You are either a project contact on at least one current Green Star registered project, or can provide a letter of recommendation from the applicant or project contact confirming substantial level involvement on Green Star projects.

We are excited to offer this inspiring opportunity to help shape the green building industry in Australia. Certified Assessors play a pivotal role in Green Star by reviewing, considering and recommending whether project documentation submitted to the GBCA for a Green Star rating meets the requirements in order to obtain the desired rating. Integral to the decision making process, feedback from Certified Assessors is also used to review rating tools and provide clarification on technical issues. The Certified Assessor ensures that each Green Star submission is assessed in an objective, fair and robust manner by following the methodology outlined in the procedures set by the GBCA.
