Environmental Recruitment Agencies Directory

The environmental sector contributes about £20 billion each year to the UK economy, and is closely tied to the fields of renewable energy and carbon regulation. At present, more than 200,000 people are employed in environmental industry positions, and the sector is expected to add many more jobs in coming years. In fact, the field is already seeing substantial growth, as recent governmental sanctions and subsidies have bolstered employment outlooks for environmental professionals. Contaminated Land Geologist, Waste Management Technician, and Environmental Assessor are just a few examples of popular jobs in the field, and recruitment agencies can help place jobseekers in a wide variety of diverse positions within the industry.

Salaries range from £17K for entry-level roles up to £50K and more for experienced and highly qualified professionals. Overall, the average income in the field is about £28K, but environmental workers in Scotland and Northern Ireland tend to make significantly more than their counterparts in other regions of the UK. In stark contrast to many other industries, London is actually one of the lowest paying regions in this sector.

Though many roles do not require special certifications or degrees, a university background in environmental studies is highly desirable, and the most competitive candidates will have completed post-graduate study.
