Figure: What wider sustainability company benefits are important to you?
Early career professionals (ECPs) are positive about working in the UK environmental & sustainability consulting sector, according to Environment Analyst’s Early Career Survey. The survey saw 370 ECPs share their thoughts on sector entry routes, job satisfaction, retention and the skills crisis.
The survey found role variation, international work and a sense of purpose were critical determinants of job satisfaction. However, the results flagged sub-optimal performance in the areas of sector diversity, salaries, and early engagement with young learners when compared to other professional service sectors.
