A recent study has revealed Bangor University in Wales, as the best place to study, for the 3rd best environmental job role in the UK – Arboriculturist.
Carried out by Sustainable online platform, Bower Collective, the study factors in average salary, market growth trends, demand and minimum education requirements, ranking 44 of the topmost advertised environmental job roles across 11 different sectors.
Following on from this, the study also suggests the UK’s top university offering the best and most relevant degree for each role.
Top findings include:
- The role of ‘Arboriculturist’ has ranked as the UK’s 3rd best environmental job, thanks to its high ranking where salary prospects are concerned, with those in the position expecting to rake in an average of £41,268 a year (9th best-paid role overall)
- The role has also seen a strong 5-year market growth (+224%) and entry requirements are not as strict, with most vacancies just requiring a diploma/certification rather than a degree.
- Bangor University is also revealed to be the ‘Best Place To Study’ if you’re considering a career as a ‘Forest/Woodland Manager’, another one of the UK’s top environmental jobs.
- Overall, the demand to fill environmental job roles has increased by 91% in the UK, compared to 5 years ago (2016). The average salary within the sector is also 12% above the national average, at £35,267
The UK government recently announced their plan to quadruple the number of ‘Green’ jobs by 2030. With the aim of steering those considering a job in this field, Bower Collective have conducted a study analysing the topmost advertised ‘environmental’ job roles across 11 sectors. The ‘sustainable living’ experts have also created a tool, which enables those contemplating a career in the field to see a complete ranking of prospective job roles based on their preferred combination of relevant factors.
