Sustainability is a hot topic. Increasingly, more employers are looking for students with sustainability skills and literacy. And not just in environmentally focused jobs, but in engineering, retail, urban planning and many more! There is a huge range of opportunities in this rapidly growing sector.

Over the hour, we will introduce you to a range of different volunteering opportunities available at UCL and explore how participating will not only increase your chances of getting a job in sustainability but also broaden your skill set in a topic that is rapidly becoming part of every industry.

Come along to this session and learn about all the opportunities you can get involved in at UCL to improve your chances of securing a sustainable career whilst also learning about how sustainable skills and practices can be useful for any career.
