Sustainable Development Consultants
The opportunity
Now is the time to build better, to live better. Join leaders in the field at one of Melbourne’s largest sustainability practices - Sustainable Development Consultants (SDC). Work with passionate, highly skilled individuals collaboratively assisting architects, designers and developers in producing exceptional, innovative built environments for the future.
Create genuine positive environmental impact. Support world-leading design and construction teams in achieving and exceeding sustainability ratings, performance, efficiency and comfort - across a wide range of ESD projects and disciplines.
At SDC you're offered both flexible working conditions and the opportunity to be nurtured toward a leadership role within the practice.
Our locations
Our bright, open-plan office is located in the heart of vibrant Camberwell, close to public transport and offers our staff on-site parking and end of trip amenities.
And with a branch office in Castlemaine, along with support for hybrid working, this role offers the opportunity to be based in metro Melbourne or regional Victoria (or even a little of both if you fancy trying out a tree change...).
