Graduates could benefit from green job increase

Published: Wednesday, 28 April 2010   Category: Science, Engineering and IT

Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT may be interested to hear the views of a sustainability expert who has said that creation of more green jobs is vital if support for environmental issues is to be increased.

Tony Rooke, head of sustainability and environment for Logica, said that getting people into green jobs would be integral in motivating people to adopt more environmentally-friendly habits.

He added: "I think one key way of making [sustainability] more popular is to actually make more jobs have a component of, or be related to, the sustainability industry.

"If you know your job is related to the sustainability industry, or that your firm has a key commitment to that, then that actually really raises it up on your mental panorama."

His comments come after the three main parties made various green jobs promises in their manifestos.

Labour pledged to create 400,000 new green jobs by 2010, the Lib Dems said they will help to create green employment for thousands while the Tories promised to "unleash the power of green enterprise".
