Position Summary and Primary Objective

The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) is a member-based not-for-profit industry council. ISCA is the peak industry body for advancing sustainability outcomes in infrastructure. ISCA’s purpose is to accelerate sustainability in infrastructure through collaboration. ISCA’s values are:

Collaboration | Passion | Change | Knowledge.

The principal means by which ISCA is advancing sustainability outcomes in infrastructure is through the development and facilitation of the IS rating scheme. IS rating scheme is an industry-compiled voluntary sustainability performance framework evaluating planning, design, construction and operation of all infrastructure asset classes. The IS rating scheme is Australia’s only comprehensive standard for evaluating sustainability across design, construction and operation of infrastructure.

The primary objective of the IS Co-ordinator is to provide support (technical and administrative) to the Case Managers and Sustainability Leadership team, primarily on registered IS ratings as they move through the rating process. The IS Co-ordinator must have a can-do attitude, show initiative with abilities to work productively in a team and on their own. The IS Co-ordinator role is often a precursor to the Case Management position.

We are looking for a sustainability professional with excellent collaborative and organisational skills to join us during this exciting time of growth. The role of IS Coordinator has a clear career pathway to Case Manager. You will be involved in a variety of project activities across Australia and interactions with ISCA's extensive industry network.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Providing support to Case Managers throughout the rating process for registered project/assets.
  • Arranging and participating in project meetings with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Managing and organising key rating documents (e.g. registers and procedures).
  • Assisting with the management of ratings and associated processes (e.g. assurance).
  • Maintaining the online ratings directory and associated documents (e.g. case studies).
  • Researching, documenting and communicating rating scheme credit criteria and benchmarks.
  • Development of IS related education and support materials, and coordination of related activities.
  • Other responsibilities include other forms of communications and logistics for stakeholder groups including advisory and member working groups.

Experience/Qualifications

  • Tertiary degree in sustainability, relevant engineering discipline, environmental science, communications, social studies or other related area.
  • 2-4 years' experience in sustainability, environment or similar areas.
  • Experience in at least one stage of the infrastructure asset life cycle.
  • Good IT knowledge including advanced MS Excel skills and intermediate skills in MS Word, PowerPoint and Outlook. SharePoint/CRM skills are also desirable.
  • Working knowledge of sustainability rating tools will put you at a distinct advantage.
  • Working knowledge of international assurance or rating schemes will be highly regarded.

Personal Attributes

  • Strong organisational skills and attention to detail
  • Dynamic, flexible and adaptable to change
  • Ability to work autonomously and as part of a small team as well as on your own
  • Excellent interpersonal, report writing, written and oral communications
