Career-changing can be daunting, and at IEMA we often receive queries from individuals who want to move into a green job, but are unsure where to start. We know that a large proportion of the workforce of the future are in employment now, and that we also have a green skills gap which we need to improve. It’s therefore important to support those who want to move into a green role and harness their passion for the environment.

We’ve collaborated with Hays UK, a strategic partner of the Green Careers Hub, to bring you this webinar. Paul Gosling, National Director – Sustainability, who regularly talks to both candidates and employers, will be presenting this online session to provide tips and advice. The webinar will explore:

  • Current trends in sustainability and the broader context of green jobs
  • How to maximise your value from previous roles and identify your transferable skills and knowledge
  • The benefits of volunteering in a green role or organisation
  • How to tailor/address the career change in your applications

We will also hear from an individual who has changed career and moved into a green job, talking about their personal experiences and journey.

This session is open to everyone, particularly those who are interested in changing career and moving into a sustainability-focused role, but perhaps don’t know where to start on that journey. The Green Careers Hub can support you, wherever you are on your green careers journey.
