Build your career at BRE

Our purpose is to contribute to a thriving and sustainable world by developing science-led solutions to built environment challenges. Founded in 1921, we are a profit-for-purpose organisation and any money we make is ploughed back into the business, so that we can continue to invest for the benefit of building safety and sustainability.

For the last 100 years we’ve been supporting the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of people around the world by developing and delivering innovative and rigorous standards such as BREEAM and researching topics such as the UK’s housing stock and its impact on health.

Our people are at the heart of BRE. We strive to be a great place to work, promoting two-way engagement and actively listening to colleagues’ views and opinions, and equality, diversity and inclusivity through our networking groups.

We enable our people to take on new challenges, in varied and interesting roles, that contribute to making the built environment safer, and more sustainable. For more information about how we could be your next career move, please email  or browse our current vacancies.
