Calling all Environmental Professionals:  your help is needed to provide detailed information on environmental career options. You don’t need to be an expert on environmental careers, you just need to know about your role and your career history and complete an online survey. This survey is a part of research being undertaken to document the range of professional environmental jobs across Australia, and identify the types of skills, knowledge and experience associated with these jobs. This information will be used to create a 2010 Australian Guide to Environmental Careers.  Since the last environmental job survey five years ago, the environmental sector has grown considerably. Detailed information on the impact this growth has had on breadth of jobs and careers within Australia is very limited.

This survey will ascertain the range of professional environmental or green jobs across Australia and identify skills and education requirements for, and basic tasks of, these roles. This information will be used to provide career advice and guidance to those wanting to work, and currently working, in the environmental sector.

The survey closes on November 30, 2009.

The survey is being undertaken by RMIT and Environmental Jobs Network and should be completed by professionals whose main focus in their work (or the organisation they work for) plays a role in reducing environmental pollution & degradation and changing the way we live to restore ecological balance and achieve sustainability.  The survey takes 25 minutes to complete. This is a big request, but the information you provide will be used to help the sector to continue to secure professionals and suitable personnel, now and in the future. It also gives you time to reflect upon your career.   We are also looking for individuals to provide information about their career profiles that will be featured in the finished guide (the profiles will be anonymous so that your identity and organisation will not be identifiable). If you are interested in contributing your profile please provide your name and telephone number where indicated.

Go to the survey.
