According to the UK government the Net Zero Strategy, is driving an unprecedented £100 billion of private sector investment into new British industries including offshore wind and supporting 480,000 new clean jobs by the end of the decade.  With jobs in this sector including countryside ranger apprenticeships, smart energy experts, to solar panel installers. Recycling operatives and wind turbine technicians to electric vehicle engineers, data analyst and farm managers, the jobs are extremely varied. 

We have a number of resources on our webpage covering different sectors including Environment & Conservation and Renewable Energy and Utilities -   Within these pages there are lots of links to further information.

Demand for graduate skills is extremely high in the green economy, with graduates from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects particularly sought after. The University of Plymouth offers a number of excellent Masters conversion programmes that allows graduates from a range of disciplines to specialise in new skills and expanding areas.
