Those looking for a job may be wise to invest time in acquiring skills in area of landscape architecture and engineering, as people with these attributes are needed to help the UK grow its green economy.
According to a spokeswoman for the Centre for Alternative Technology, there is a pressing need for suitably-qualified people who can help the country in its transition to becoming carbon free.
A combination of a lack of training, financing and upskilling in the labour force means the UK lacks people with the knowledge to improve the green economy, something which must be addressed sooner or later.
"Forecasts suggest a shortfall in supply of suitably qualified professionals, with organisations expecting to have particular difficulty recruiting landscape architects, engineers, planners, managers and those with particular specialist and technical skills," the representative added.
Nick Medic, head of communications at RenewableUK, said recently that the renewable energy sector must do more to attract young people to learn the skills needed for a career in this area.
