Our 'Green & Responsible' Candidates
- Around 80 per cent of the graduates believe the number of Green jobs will continue to rise in the future, despite the current economic downturn.
- Almost half of the graduates surveyed recently by CHANGE AGENTS UK hold a Master’s degree, yet nearly two-thirds are dissatisfied in their current role. Many feel under-employed, while also experiencing widespread structural unemployment. Despite this, almost three-quarters feel they are still making a contribution towards sustainability.
- The survey also revealed that working for a sustainable future is more important to graduates than even financial reward and job security. Indeed, 87 per cent said that a job that aligns with their ethics and works towards sustainability is worth more than a higher salary.
