Whilst much of the green skill growth is concentrated within environmental careers, there is growth of green skills within non-traditionally green roles, as the green industry is merging across industries.
Therefore, role requirements are changing, and this could affect you!
Recent research identified four green skill trends we are currently seeing:
- The need for green skilling in non-traditional specialist roles.
- The transition of green skills in traditionally specialist sustainable roles.
- Increasing demand for green skills in newly established roles.
- The development of green skills.
Interestingly, research has found industries including finance, operations & distributions, procurement & supply chain, HR, and resilience management have the largest gap of green skills within their roles.
Therefore, ensuring you’re prepared as a green skilled candidate could give you a competitive advantage within your employability journey, regardless of your industry!
