About The Sector

The sector offers a diverse range of environmental employment opportunities that are challenging, interesting and extremely rewarding. As this area is so diverse there are opportunities to find suitable roles with almost any kind of educational background though having a genuine interest in preservation and improvement will be an obvious advantage. However there are certain skills and areas of knowledge that can help to secure a role in the sector more easily. Professionals can pursue a variety of career paths such as working in academia, working for professional associations, designing pollution control equipment, information management, journalism, law, research, teaching or writing. Furthermore as problems tend to be global in nature there are no national boundaries and there are lots of opportunities to work internationally in your specialist field.

Within the sector the majority of positions are in the following categories - private sector (Industry/Manufacturing/Consulting), public sector and the non profit sector (NGO's/Charities etc). The private sector has a diverse range of business types including FTSE 100 companies, oil and gas companies, utility companies and medium size and small companies. As a professional working in the private sector you may be responsible for maintaining compliance with laws and regulations, carrying out impact assessments, monitoring emissions, auditing compliance, developing and implementing company policies or overseeing the implementation of various pollution prevention and control technologies. There are also a large number of consulting companies that specialise in providing these services to other organisations. Within the public sector opportunities are available at all levels of experience for professionals and these can be found at all levels of government - national, regional, county and local. These types of roles tend to be focused on protection ensuring that national and international laws and regulations are adhered to by organisations in their jurisdiction. This involves creating regulations/public policy for adoption by industry, enforcing emission limits, air quality monitoring, water analysis, enforcement or working to preserve and enhance natural resources such as forests, oceans and rivers. Within the public sector salaries can sometimes be lower than the private sector but the added security and extra benefits associated with these positions can make these types of careers extremely appealing. The non profit sector tends to focus on areas that are not being adequately covered by either the private or public sectors such as protection for a particular resource (e.g. air, trees, water etc).
