Try a Green Collar for Size; IMPACT: Stephen Prior Advises on Carbon Offsetting


Byline: KATIE TAYLOR

WHILE many blue and whitecollar workers are disheartened by their employment prospects in the recession, 'green collar' staff can afford to feel a little more upbeat as opportunities emerge in the growing cleantech sector.

Venture capital investment in the world's biggest clean-tech markets almost doubled last year while the drive for alternative renewable energy sources is expected to create a demand for jobs in the year ahead.

Brian Sullivan, chief executive of global recruitment company CTPartners, has identified two main career avenues.

'First, there are opportunities with mainstream organisations making major changes to their entire operations - from facilities management to environmental affairs - to demonstrate their commitment to the sustainable business agenda,' he says.

'Second, there are also opportunities with companies in the renewable energy sector itself, for example, manufacturers of wind turbines and biodiesel.'

This is good news for those with experience in the conventional engineering, building and construction industries, for whom work has virtually dried up over the past year.

Sullivan says: 'These people will have good transferable skills that clean-tech employers will be looking for.' CTPartners has just published its annual Hot Executive Jobs report and it highlights the impact that the growth in alternative, renewable energy sources is likely to have on recruitment.

Strategic as well as hands-on green-collar roles will be created, as well as a new class of executive on the senior management team. Opportunities also exist in those investment funds focused on clean, energy-renewable sources.
