The first website in Europe that specifically targets young people aspiring to become environmental professionals has been set up for green and eager graduates.
Developed by StudentForce and the Institution of Environmental Sciences, www.environmentcareers.org.uk is aimed at the increasing number of people wanting to get environmental jobs.
The Duke of Westminster-funded enterprise is conscious of the fact that while job opportunities in this sector are increasing worldwide, the essential relevant experience required by employers can leave many short.
The facility refers to over 500 websites and gives up-to-date, expert careers advice and information. This includes recent trends, opportunities in the environment sector, applications, interviews and work experience.
The website will allow StudentForce and its partners to promote environmental careers in general and give advice to students and graduates.
StudentForce chief executive Adam Cade said: "Until now there has been no one-stop-shop for advice and guidance on the range of routes to becoming an environmental professional."
