JUST CLOSED: EARLY CAREERS SURVEY 2023
To understand how the sector would attract and retain the next generation of talent, Environment Analyst’s Early Career Advisory Board launched our second Early Career Survey. The survey asked early career professionals how they entered their profession, why they chose their career, if they were satisfied with their role, and more. The findings were used by senior business leaders within the industry to plan outreach activities and improve recruitment and retention initiatives.
2022 RESULTS SHOW PURPOSE IS KEY MOTIVATOR FOR ECPs

Early career professionals (ECPs) are positive about working in the UK environmental & sustainability consulting sector, according to Environment Analyst’s 2022 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.
