Working for the Earth and Good Instead of Just a Paycheck!
Over years of work on green jobs trends, policies and development strategies we’ve collected a fair bit of info on green and environmental jobs’ boards. I thought I’d pass this along to those of you who might be looking to find work healing the planet! After all, we need all hands on deck right now for our lovely ol’ Earth.
Here are some useful Green Jobs’ boards:
http://www.sustainablebusiness.com. For this site click Green Dream Jobs on top navigation bar. They have a really good mix of jobs from solar installers to advocacy positions.
http://www.greenjobs.net. This site is really good in some areas really outdated in others.
http://www.ecojobs.com. This is a really useful site but you may have to pay a bit to get full listings.
www.ecoemploy.com/. This site is a little less robust than some but worth a look.
http://www.goinggreenjobs.com. This site has a lot of listings mostly in energy and technical fields. Many listings are not actually green jobs.
http://jobs.greenbiz.com. This site tends to feature a lot of big corporation jobs.
http://www.conservationjobboard.com. This is a really interesting site for jobs all over the world directly related to environmental conservation. For example, I once saw a posting for Director of Sloths! No, they weren’t talking about directing a bunch of lazy co-workers!
http://sustainabilityleads.com/jobs. A very good resource for sustainability management and education positions.
ReWork is a very good jobs board.
And the B Lab jobs Board is also very useful. It includes jobs with registered B Corporations. Note you need to scroll to the bottom of the page and find the jobs board link.
Another good source is social enterprise network listing.
Finally, here is a link to information about jobs in the Forestry industry.
It’s worth noting that several of these jobs boards provide free regular email notices of new and current job listings.
Another great environmental and green jobs resource is the Green Jobs Network group on Linked In.
That’s about it for now. I’d love to hear if you have feedback on any of these sites or if you have information on other green jobs’ listing resources. We’ll keep building and sharing this resource list.
Thanks so much!
