Senior Sustainability Engineer

Just imagine your future with us…

At Aurecon we see the future through a very different lens. Do you?

Innovation, eminence and digital are at the heart of everything we do.  Are you excited about the future?

Are you driven by the opportunity to work on some of the most challenging and complex projects around the world and to learn from the best? We are.

Diversity is at the core of everything we do. We work together to create a culture based on respect, trust and inclusiveness. Our differences are what fuel our creativity.

We embrace flexible working and have embedded this into our culture at Aurecon. This flexibility enables this role to be carried out while working from home, as we continue to put the safety of our people and their families first.

What will you do?

At Aurecon, we are committed to going above and beyond what is required for a project and using our knowledge and tools to prove to our clients that sustainability and climate resilience is an investment that manages future risk to our world.

Bringing with you your strong client skills, commercial acumen and technical expertise, you join our Melbourne based Built Environment group. You will play an integral part in a team of highly skilled specialists that ‘bring ideas to life’ for our clients across all types of iconic projects from stadiums, city changing infrastructure, commercial, education and clients who simply want to reduce their impact on the planet.

Our sustainability team is design oriented and strive to look beyond the minimum to achieve a balanced outcome for the project and client that is resilient, sustainable and healthy. The desired person for this role ideally has specialised experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • climate change resilience and adaptation
  • the optimisation of building design to reduce carbon intensity through passive design
  • circular economy and life cycle analysis
  • independent commissioning agent, asset management and energy auditing
  • renewable energy design
  • in-depth building performance modelling including HVAC modelling in IES

Whilst it isn’t all about compliance you must have knowledge and experience in delivering sustainability ratings for the major rating schemes in Australia (Green Star, LEED, WELL, NABERS, ISCA) and compliance with Section J of the National Construction Code. Digital modelling skills would certainly also go a long way.

We know the work we do is vital in assisting our world’s sustainable development and, it’s the technical expertise and the depth of knowledge of our people that really sets us apart. Here are other key things you will be doing in order to ‘bring ideas to life’.

  • Work with internal and external stake holders to develop awareness of sustainability initiatives, and to develop sustainability programs to improve the culture and sustainability outcomes for clients.
  • Build on our key client relationships.
  • Collaborate with a global team of sustainability professionals.
  • Support senior staff in project management, project delivery and business development.
  • Support and mentor junior staff in project delivery and professional development.
  • Contribute to and deliver NABERS, LEED, WELL, ISCA, Passive House and Green Star ratings
  • Advice related to regulatory compliance with schemes such as Section J
  • Project advice on best practice sustainable design
  • Building simulation for energy, thermal comfort, daylight, glare, natural ventilation and shading
  • Report writing
  • Whole of Life expertise to enable financial evaluation of sustainability initiatives to determine viability and payback period

We know today’s complex challenges can only be solved through bringing together diverse teams of people from across our business, so there will be opportunities for you to apply your skills and creativity to projects in other geographies and markets.

What can you bring to the team?

Firstly, you will share our genuine passion for re-imagining engineering and be someone that actively pursues continuous learning to help shape the future.

Our Aurecon Attributes describe the types of people we bring together for clients. We don’t expect you to have all eight of the attributes, but one that is unique to you.

Finally, we value that each of our team members brings something different to Aurecon. We look for people who have had a broad range of experiences throughout their career and can demonstrate how they have worked as part of a team to bring ideas to life. Does that sound like you?
