Sustainability Careers Workshops

Change Agents UK have been recruiting and developing graduates to work in a variety of sustainability-related roles in public, private and third sector organisations across the UK and wider EU since 1996.

We had over 2500 applications last year for 60 roles - an average of 42 applicants per position (but one position alone attracted 315 applicants!). We therefore understand the challenges of graduates needing to be fully prepared for the interview and application process, in order to do justice to their passion and knowledge to work in the sector. We have used this experience to develop a series of workshops designed to identify and develop the skills that students and graduates need to successfully break into the world of sustainability work.
