Have you ever wondered who makes up our team at the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA)?

You might be surprised to learn that we come from all sorts of diverse professional backgrounds.

We’re a team of engineers, architects, event planners, writers, marketers and thought-leaders who have one thing in common – our passion to transform Australia’s sustainable built environment.

Now, we’re on the hunt to grow our Green Star team with the addition of a Technical Specialist.

If you share our passion for sustainability, we want you on board to join the green building revolution.

What do you need to bring to the table?

We’re looking for someone who has a tertiary qualification in engineering, planning, environmental science or a similar discipline to help shape Australia’s future. If you’re a Green Star Accredited Professional – even better! Familiarity with our rating system will be an invaluable tool to assisting out team.

What can we offer you?

Here at the GBCA we’re proud of a company culture that incites creativity, collaboration and long term solutions to the environmental challenges our industry faces. We’re a flexible workplace, which means we understand the 9-5 grind doesn’t suit everyone’s needs – and we can facilitate an arrangement that works better for you. Plus, we are lucky enough to work in a 6 Star Green Star rated community in Barangaroo.

Hear it for yourself!

How has your role at the GBCA evolved over the past few years?
