BC Housing: Energy Specialist

BC Housing – one of BC’s top 55 employers—is the provincial Crown agency that develops, manages and administers a wide range of subsidized housing options and programs for those most in need across the province. Creative and responsive to changing social pressures, BC Housing is recognized as a well-managed organization where people are passionate about their socially relevant work. It’s different here.

Join BC Housing in its commitment to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from energy consumption. Reporting to the Director, Smart Building and Energy Management, you’ll identify and enhance opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of our corporate offices and the properties we administer.

Your main focus will be identifying and supporting opportunities to improve the energy performance and sustainability of BC Housing’s projects. These projects include BC Housing’s energy retrofit projects, new LEED-certified construction projects, tenant sustainability education programs and in-house sustainability initiatives. You’ll also develop design standards and tenant engagement programs that promote energy efficiency and sustainability. Additionally, you’ll work to build business cases that advocate energy efficiency projects.

Your completion of the Sustainable Energy Management Associate Certificate program from BCIT will be necessary for this role, as would your knowledge of: building mechanical, electrical and green-building systems; energy and economic analysis tools; the BC Building Code; and technical and case-study report writing using MS Office applications. Detail-oriented, professional, approachable and a great communicator, you have what it takes to take BC Housing into the future. A valid driver’s licence and the ability to travel and work periodic evenings and weekends will be required.

Share in the rewards of working with an organization that offers challenging work, competitive compensation and supports the growth and development of its people.
