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!

In collaboration with UCL Careers and UCLU's Green Economy Society, our environmental week will expand your knowledge on the business and global challenge elements of the sustainability sector and pursue a career in the field by learning about:

  • Analysing real-world situations critically - more and more jobs are global - and an understanding of global issues is vital.
  • Demonstrating leadership and ethical awareness - increasingly desirable to conscious customers
  • Working wihtin different social contexts
  • Engaging with a diverse range of people
  • Using resources wisely and saving money

Why?

FACT: Students with sustainability skills, who have the ability to solve our global challenges are highly employable. Organisations now seek employees across the entire organisation who are sustainability literate - not just in 'sustainability' roles. For example Procurement Officers need to know about procuring items which are in line with the Modern Day Slavery Act and the Circular Economy.

Our challenge to you…

Inform yourself whist challenging our business representatives at our panel and networking events, such as:

  • How does your organisation define sustainability?
  • Is CSR just greenwashing or does it make a difference?
  • What skills do I need to be competitive in the sustainability job market?
  • What are the future trends for the energy or construction markets?
  • How is each sector driving forward a sustainable future?

Sustainability is a realistic, varied, interesting and prosperous career path which has many routes in, and isn’t just for geographers! Find out for yourself by attending our Environment Careers Week events!
