30 April 2014 — Due to an internal transfer, Jones Lang LaSalle is searching for a new national sustainability manager to be based in the firm’s Canberra office. The role will involve working closely with the government business directors and managers to lead sustainability services for JLL across a robust client portfolio.

A thorough knowledge of best practice sustainability knowledge and techniques, in addition to experience with NABERS, undertaking energy audits and the ability to upgrade projects, will be essential to get a foot in the door, and tertiary qualifications in engineering, building services or operations will be favourably regarded.

JLL has been experiencing strong and consistent growth for the past four years across the firm’s core business areas of specialised real estate services and investment management, announcing a record-breaking performance for 2013 by the Australian business of a 12 per cent increase in revenues and a 25 per cent increase in profits.

Chief executive of JLL Australia Stephen Conry said, “Particularly given lower levels of business confidence and a much weaker office leasing market in Australia last year, our results for 2013 are even more pleasing.

“The Australian business has grown dramatically over the past four years with more diverse service offerings and increased market share.”

Some of the firm’s recent successes have included the sale of $10.5 million worth of residential development sites in Kellyville, the $32 million sale of a Macquarie Park commercial development site and the leasing of a combined 15,000 square metres of A-Grade commercial space in Chatswood, including the lease of space to Lend Lease in Zenith, a Green Globe award-winning DEXUS property with a 5.5 star NABERS rating.
