Five Environmental Jobs For The Future
 Five Environmental Jobs For The Future

The world is moving towards a greener perspective faster by the day and these jobs could be in high demand in the near future to come. So I guess it is time to upskill.

Water Specialist

Water is said to be the scarcest essential resource and sustainable management will soon be a crucial department to fill with the relevant skills. Water specialists investigate water issues and ways to maintain water supply and quality.

A degree in environmental chemistry, biotechnology or chemical engineering would be the way to help you make a real difference in the world.

Waste Management Consultant

Waste is a problem on our planet, and someone has to deal with the overflowing landfills. Consultants will be in great need to eliminate the tons of refuse currently clogging waterways and stretches of land. Waste is becoming a bigger problem year after year.

A qualification in chemistry and biology would be the way to secure a job for the future.

Renewable energies technician

As the focus increases to use and integrate renewable energy as a preferred energy source, the need for a qualified workforce is being sought by industry, communities, environmental groups, and federal and provincial governments.

Wind Turbine Technician

If solar power is the weathered veteran of the alternative energy trade, then wind turbines are the bright young upstart. As natural as the sun and just as plentiful, wind power is being hailed as one of the best new energy forms. At the moment, production is rocky due to the economy, but once funding picks up in the near future, wind is predicted to be one of the fastest growing industries in the green energy sector.

Sustainable Urban Planner

As the call for a more a greener country gets louder, local governments are turning to city planners and architects to make their communities more "green."

If you are committed to positive change, making a difference in people’s lives and you are committed to investing your unique talents, expertise and passion in making our communities and environments sustainable, and a healthier place to live then this may just be the career for you.
