Environmental Jobs Overview

An environmental job is one of the most rewarding and timely career paths out there. Never have environmental issues been more prevalent and as a result there are dozens of different types of environmental jobs available. Whether you envision yourself as a leading environmental lawyer helping to pass innovative legislature, an environmental engineer working on sustainable technology, or as a staff member of an environmental charity or agency, the choices are virtually endless.

As natural resources become depleted and animal species face extinction, governments and various organisations are taking action on a global scale. Much must be done, and you can help make a direct impact by choosing an environmental career route. Just a few of the many environmental roles to consider include:

Environmental Jobs Education and Skills

As there are so many different environmental career paths, the education and skill level can vary significantly from job to job. So every time you explore jobs on Monster, make sure to check exactly what qualifications and skill sets an employer is after.

However, generally good qualifications to have include A Levels in subjects such as biology or marine science. Strong mathematics skills may also be required for certain roles. There are various environmental degree programs offered. In addition to a Bachelor of Science in biology, there are degree options such as:

  • environmental science
  • marine biology
  • ecology
  • environmental management

Plus, some senior roles may require further studies, such as completion of a Master of Science, or in some cases a PhD. Furthermore, if you’re hoping to work in the more administration, communication, or political side of the environmental sector, you may not need a background in science at all. Instead, an employer may be looking for examples of proficient communication management and organisational qualifications and skills.

How Much Do Environmental Jobs Pay?

Environmental roles’ salaries can vary based on experience, education level, and the specific type of role. For example, the average biological scientist can expect a median salary of £40,560, whereas a conservation associate professional can expect a median salary of £22,880.

You may also want to do some research to get more environment job salary ranges across the UK. Finally, don’t be put off if an average salary may seem on the low side, as this is an overall average statistic, and a salary can rise significantly as you climb the ranks and gain more experience. Lastly, it is also important to factor in living costs and see how this compares to the salary offered.

Update Your CV

If you’re ready to apply for environmental jobs, then you will want to update your CV first. It is vital to tailor your CV to each job you apply for. This shows the recruiter and HR department that you’re taking the job process seriously, and that you have the specific skills and interest required for the role.

Fortunately, we have an entire portal dedicated to CV writing tips. This includes how to craft a winning CV as well as how to write an impressive cover letter. Many roles may require a cover letter, and this is a fantastic opportunity for you to demonstrate your passion for the environment as well as what attributes you can bring to the table.

Preparing for Your Environmental Job Interview

Once you’ve landed that all-important first interview, be sure to brush up on your interview skills beforehand. Even if you’re just attending a video interview, you will still be expected to be professional and will likely be put on the spot with some tricky questions.
