Australia has 1.2 percent more green job opportunities compared to other countries in the Asia Pacific, which only account for 0.36 percent
Karin Kimbrough, LinkedIn’s chief economist, shared that several sectors are adopting a green work experience, such as agriculture and construction, which are adjusting well to the adoption of green technology and green skills, reported The Canberra Times.
Richard Bolt of international consultancy Nous Group said, “Part of the quid pro quo will be employees looking at what the sustainability credentials are of their employers, and also the opportunities for themselves to develop those skills.” Thus, large-scale renewable energy sources will be developed, including on- and offshore wind and solar farms. New fleets of vehicles, planes, and ships will be built or imported.
According to Human Resources Director Magazine, Australia’s labour market has seen an influx in demand for green skills as the economy accelerates its efforts to lessen its carbon footprint and shift into more sustainable systems.
LinkedIn’s Global Green Skills Report 2022 indicated that the sectors currently hiring green talent in Australia include construction, corporate services, energy and mining, public administration, and manufacturing. The data also showed that Australia has 1.2 percent more green job opportunities compared to other countries in the Asia Pacific, which only account for 0.36 percent.
Ecologists and geologists are the fastest-growing green jobs while power system engineers, risk management directors, and surveillance supervisors are among the fastest-growing greening jobs.
Matt Tindale, the managing director of LinkedIn Australia and New Zealand, told The Sydney Morning Herald, “… globally, green workers were hired at a higher rate than non-green workers. The pandemic has accelerated this trend, which suggests that green talent has been relatively more resilient to an economic downturn than non-green talent.”
The integration of green talents into jobs that are not usually associated with environmental impact is an important element in continuing development. Corporate focus on climate-related risk management and financial disclosure is also expanding.
