Types of Green Jobs

When we started to think about all of the jobs that you could do to help protect and restore nature, it got a little complicated. There are so many different types of jobs, or even the same job but with a different job title, it can be confusing.

And then there are the same jobs that mean different things in different employment sectors. See what we mean? We also wanted to give you the lowdown on what all these jobs do, how much you can earn in the early years, and what are the good bits and not-so-good bits about these roles.

So we have grouped example jobs by type of job, and then the type of employer, to help you explore about what kind of green job for nature might be right for you. Many of the examples on this website are entry-level or mid-level roles but we have included some more senior roles to give you a flavour of where your career can take you.
