Environmental Industry Overview

The environmental industry is diverse, encompassing practical opportunities in conservation, wildlife, and forestry management to more scientific roles in air quality, ecology, and renewable energy. The environmental industry also includes specialist roles in environmental law, engineering, and education.

With the number of green industry jobs anticipated to rise, the demand for graduates with the skills and interest in environmental protection has never been so high.

For graduates entering the environmental industry, there is the opportunity to work in all weather conditions, and participate in site visits, field-based research, and general office work. Environmental consultants typically advise on sustainability, waste management, flood risk and impacts of climate change. Salaries starts at £23,000 but can rise upwards of £40,000.

Considering the combination of market growth, the number of opportunities and average salaries, the position of a sustainability consultant is considered the most promising role in the environmental sector.

Overall listings for environmental jobs in the UK in 2021 increased by 91% compared to just five years ago. All environmental-based jobs have experienced an increase, but a ‘Fisheries Technician’ has experienced a 675% increase in job opportunities. The fisheries industry recently received an investment sum of £24,000,000, accelerating the number of jobs available in this sector.

Other in-demand positions include countryside and park rangers, climate change officers and environmental health professionals.

In terms of salary, people entering the environmental industry can earn over 12% of the national average salary, with the average industry salary for environmental jobs starting at a little over £35,000. Studies suggest that the best position in terms of salary prospects is an ‘environmental designer,’ earning an average of £57,000. The highest-paid sector in the field is environmental law.

Some of the most in-demand environmental opportunities are within the waste industry. Recycling managers, sustainability and environmental consultants are also trending fields.
