About The Sector

The term refers to the preservation, protection or restoration of the natural environment, natural ecosystems, vegetation and wildlife. Its main focus is on maintaining the well-being of the natural world, including its biological diversity, habitats and fisheries, while its secondary focus is on energy and material conservation. Indeed within the area there are a number of specialist areas such as biology, energy, habitat, marine, soil, water, wetland and wildlife conservation.

For many people a career is their ultimate goal, however as this is an extremely popular career field it can be very difficult, even for highly trained professionals, to find the job they desire. This situation has been made even more challenging given the state of the global economy and funding cuts. If you have little experience then volunteering or undertaking an internship to gain work experience is an essential step on the way to find a full time role. Job seekers will have an easier time finding work if they have a specific set of marketable skills such as having a masters or PhD in specialist area coupled with hands on experience and knowing the right people.

Due to the high level of competition for suitable roles in this area it is advisable that job seekers use a variety of methods to maximise their chances of success. These include ensuring that your CV clearly reflects your interests, skills and career objectives, applying for suitable internships or volunteers programs, subscribing to key industry publications and if possible getting certified in your specialist area. Connecting with professionals is also advisable. This can involve networking with industry professionals at conferences and trade shows and joining a relevant professional organisation.

Lantra has estimated that there are approximately 3,250 organisations in the sector in the United Kingdom that employ approximately 23,000 full time employees with 200,000 people working as volunteers.
