The sustainability sector has seen tremendous growth in recent years, and it is becoming increasingly apparent that having the right person in the right job can be the key to success in this industry. As the industry is still in a nascent stage, there is a scramble for talent on the part of employers that presents opportunities for people with diverse skill sets and a background in non sustainability related domains to find their niche in cleantech.
Equally, there is the very real risk of the sector’s growth being stifled due to an insufficient talent pool.
EAI has launched the Get Set Green report on careers in sustainability to assist those looking for jobs in the green sector to identify the segment and function that would most suit them. The report is primarily targeted at
• Young career seekers who wish to begin their careers in exciting and emerging green domains
• Experienced industry professionals in conventional sectors keen on applying their expertise in ways that can make the world a cleaner place
• Individuals with unique talents, such as designing, writing, or human potential development, who wish to know how their talents can make an impact in the green industry
Get Set Green covers career opportunities for a diverse array of cleantech domains, from Renewable Energy to Organic Farming to Green IT. The report also discusses the green job market based on job functions.
