Green Jobs - and what to do about them.
Green jobs center around the skills needed to adapt products and services to climate change and related environmental requirements and regulations. There is a growing demand for Green skills in all sectors and at all levels as we tackle Climate Change and other environmental threats. If we don't, there will be no jobs left on a dead planet!

We have been surprised at the number of green jobs on offer, either by specialist sites or in the green sections of general sites. The green job listings here (Job-search) are a first attempt to bring together some useful links to reliable sites. There are also links to sites (Job-seeker Support) that spell out in some detail what green jobs are all about.

Warning! Some sites aimed at job seekers seem more concerned with pointing customers at their advertisers than offering unbiased advice - beware! The listings here are not meant to be comprehensive but hopefully represent some of the better sites offering genuine services of interest to green job seekers anywhere on the globe - feedback is welcome!
