A Network for Environmental Professionals

Career Expo

Like many areas of the Irish economy, finding opportunities in the green sector has proven to be difficult in recent years. In recognition of this, the ESAI were delighted to run yet again the environmental career expo at this year’s Environ conference, at Trinity College Dublin. Expanding on the success of last year's expo in Galway, it welcomed some of Ireland’s leading environmental organisations from a range of sectors who were on hand to offer advice and opportunities to over 200 attendees. The expo was free to attend and open to the public.

Participating this year were RPS, Teagasc, Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Green Careers Ireland, OES Consulting, Agapé Adventures, Alupro Ireland, OxyMem, Evolution Environmental Services/Noonan, Intertrade Ireland, and Northern Ireland Environmental Link. Positions on offer included environmental consultancy jobs, paid graduate programmes, fully funded international research placements, PhD studentships, postdocs, research contracts and positions within environmental inspection teams.

The Careers Advisory Service from Trinity College Dublin were also in attendance offering participants free careers advice while a panel of experienced environmental professionals assisted attendees with CV preparation. Feedback from the expo was excellent from both attendees and participating organisations. According to Caitríona McCabe of Green Careers Ireland, “We were delighted both with the high calibre of organisations that got involved but also the well qualified and experienced candidates we met. Not only was it great to meet with other organisations but it was also a fantastic way to find excellent candidates to fill our vacancies.”

It is hoped that the career expo will expand on its success and return yet again next year.
