With countries rushing to be leaders in the renewable energy and sustainable development space, and ahead of an anticipated boom in green jobs accordingly, EcoCareers is prepared to help with the heavy lifting needed to pull the UK to the forefront of the green jobs space.
EcoCareers is an online jobs board and resource website for all jobs in sustainability, whether traditional green jobs like solar panel technicians or environmental scientists to jobs in industries that are newer to sustainability, like fashion and manufacturing. EcoCareers seeks to connect employers, hiring managers and HR personnel in the green sector with jobseekers and the top talent in their respective industries.
“This is still a developing field, but it appears that the UK has some work to do when it comes to expanding green jobs and training a workforce to suitably fill those roles,” said Joseph Boll, EcoCareers CEO.
His comments come on the heels of a World Economic Forum white paper that projected the UK will need to add another 60,000 green jobs by 2030 if it is to keep up with sustainable development goals and the world’s major players in the green economy. This in comparison to the United States, which is already far ahead in terms of the number of green jobs and also has much lower unmet demand, needing just around 17,000 more by the end of the decade. Several leaders in the green space have already expressed concern about the UK falling behind in such developments.
Boll said, “This is precisely why EcoCareers was founded. We want to ensure that employers, recruiters, HR managers and jobseekers in this emerging sector all have an easy resource for connecting as the sector builds and develops. If the World Economic Forum’s projections are correct, the UK indeed has its work cut out for it and we hope to assist sustainable businesses as the region seeks to emerge as a leader in this industry.”
