Despite huge growth in environmental industries world wide, many graduates in environmental sciences still find a career eludes them

Often this is because their studies have not covered the subjects and skills which are in fact providing employment opportunities. This course differs from other environmental courses providing a unique opportunity to develop those "in demand" skills.

Environmental management is an industry that promises a growth in opportunity over the coming decades. Despite this fact though, graduates from environmental courses do often find it difficult to gain the employment they hoped for.  One must ask why?

Having an understanding of the environment is not enough in itself, to guarantee a long term career.

Some types of environmental jobs tend to be more likely dependent upon government funding; and the availability of those jobs will increase and decrease as public funding increases and decreases. Other jobs however, are more likely to always be there, and some of those more "stable" opportunities are going to offer graduates a more secure future. Consider things such as "renewable energy", "land management", "waste management", "routine environmental assessment", "wildlife management", "teaching" and "media".

To secure a future career, you need to:

  • Undertake studies that will give you a mix of skills that will always be in demand
  • Undertake a mix of studies that will differentiate you from your competition
  • Build your networks/contacts within industry
  • Build communication and management skills. Learn to write well, and efficiently. Learn to manage projects. Learn to work to specification.
