What jobs need green skills? Who do they benefit? And why is everyone talking about them?Β 

β€œGreen skills are the knowledge, abilities, values and attitudes needed to live in, develop and support a sustainable and resource-efficient society.” – United Nations.Β Β 

The United Kingdom has committed to no longer adding to the total amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by 2050 – the foundation of their net zero strategy.  

More urgently, all EU countries have set a target of reducing energy consumption by over 11% before 2030. 

As part of this plan, there is a demand for skills involved with the design, construction and technology.

Managers will also need upskilling to support these new, green activities.  

That means you could be: 

  • A tradesperson, 
  • An engineer, 
  • Working in construction or maintenance, 
  • Working in property management, 
  • Working in social housing, 
  • A project manager. 

The sooner the better. Jobs are already asking for green skills as a must on job descriptions!
