Global unemployment rates are dire as a result of the economic recession and some still fear a double-dip recession. However, the 2010 Clean Tech Job Trends report show a much brighter trend and future for green and clean tech jobs compared to most other sectors.

“Clean energy continues to fuel the plans of many cities, states, nations, investors, and companies as they look for the next wave of innovation and growth. And on many counts, the clean-energy sector is delivering new job and economic opportunities, as it moves from a once-marginalized niche to an increasingly cost-competitive, mainstream offering”. (Clean Edge ̶ Clean Tech Trends 2010)

Good! The future of green jobs looks very promising and bright, but what is a “green job” (sometimes also referred to as green-collar or clean tech jobs)? The term is frequently used for sustainability themed jobs and can often give birth to confusion. UNEP (United Nations Environment Program) defines a green job as:

“Work in agricultural, manufacturing, research and development (R&D), administrative, and service activities that contribute substantially to preserving or restoring environmental quality. Specifically, but not exclusively, this includes jobs that help to protect ecosystems and biodiversity; reduce energy, materials, and water consumption through high efficiency strategies; de-carbonize the economy; and minimize or altogether avoid generation of all forms of waste and pollution”.

Ok! So now we have a rough idea what a green job is, its trend and forecast. The term “green job” clearly seems quite broad and flexible yet at the same time very “niche”. How can then employers best reach job seekers in such niche (and vice versa). It can often be both time consuming and expensive for recruiters/employers to fill a new green job vacancy by mixing their job advertising with jobs from all other sectors. Instead of having them mixed with a whole host of unrelated jobs, employers can get much better results by advertising on a green job board. People who specifically want to work for a green company or in a green role will seek out and follow job boards that offer those types of jobs.

Green Conduct is a leading online communication hub for sustainability news, articles, engagement, literature and jobs with a strong focus on reliability and quality throughout. Green Conduct are able to offer job advertisers and job seekers a trustworthy and non-bias setting for job advertising and recruitment services due to strict policies and guidelines for exceptional contextual quality, top-class partners and contributors, and by lifting science and knowledge to its rightful level. Unlike many other well-established green websites offering job advertising, Green Conduct consistently neglect all PR publication and distribution services making them extra legitimate, independent, non-bias and thereby more reliable and trustworthy.

Green Conduct do not only offer employers cost effective, user-friendly and powerful capability to place green job ads and accept job applications but also enables job seekers to create and upload résumés which makes it a powerful crossroad and platform for green job seekers and employers to match-up.

Green Conduct has just released their flexible and quality focused job board and do therefore offer employers to submit green job ads for free (no strings attached). It is easy to tap this offer, but hurry-up! It is limited to the first 20 job ads. Simply sign-up and select the free option. This is a fantastic opportunity to get full exposure on a less crowded job board (as of being new) in a high-quality setting without having to pay a penny!

P.S. Job seekers always submit professional résumés for free.
