If you’re concerned about climate change or making companies more energy efficient, then the environment industry is the place for you. The environment industry utilises the latest scientific techniques to challenge the problems our environment faces today. You’ll get to spend a lot of time outdoors and travelling around the country.
The environment industry deals with everything from conservation, to wildlife management, to forestry. It’s a huge field with lots of opportunities for people with interests in different areas of the environment. Often, you’ll be working with people from different sectors of the industry, so teamwork is crucial.
It can be a very practical job. You’ll be out and about surveying different projects and areas. There are less active elements to the role too so you get some indoor time too: you’ll also have to keep up to date on the latest scientific developments, so there are also elements of environmental work that involve independent research.
Some disciplines within the industry will require specialised degrees, such as for meteorology or environmental engineering. Other roles like park rangers will not require a university education and can be attained through apprenticeships. Whatever your level of education, the environment industry has position for you!
