Energy Efficiency Council


The Energy Efficiency Council is a not-for-profit membership association for businesses, universities, governments and NGOs. Founded in 2009, the Council’s members are diverse, but are united by a common cause: building a sophisticated market for energy management products and services that delivers:

  • Healthy, comfortable buildings;
  • Productive, competitive businesses; and
  • An affordable, reliable and sustainable energy system for Australia.

The Energy Efficiency Council’s vision is to make Australia a global leader in smart energy management. To this end, the Council works with its members and partners to:

  • Drive ambitious government policy by advocating for smart energy management policies and programs that deliver for all Australians;
  • Support business decision making and growth with trusted, impartial information on energy so they have confidence making the right energy management investments; and
  • Build the quality of energy management products and services by delivering training and professional development to energy management professionals across Australia.

Energy management encompasses a wide range of practices and technologies including energy efficiency, demand management or load shifting, and demand response. Smart energy management makes our buildings healthier and more comfortable, our businesses more productive, and our energy system more affordable.


The Council is seeking someone who is interested in, and engaged with, Australia’s energy sector, and who possesses excellent administrative, organisational, interpersonal and communications skills. Experience in an industry association or member-based organisation will be considered favourably.

Reporting to and under the direction of the General Manager, the primary focus of this role is to provide administrative support to the operational aspects of the organisation, including the provision of member services, the delivery of the administrative aspects of the events and training programs (Sector Development) and general office administration, to ensure they are delivered efficiently and effectively.

  • CRM administration;
  • Administrative support of member services, events and training delivery; and

This role is responsible for the timely maintenance of the CRM to ensure it is current and accurate. In addition, this role will administer the meeting scheduling and travel administration of key staff, including the CEO.
