The Green Careers Hub is a platform from the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) to inform and inspire anyone, from any sector, background or career level on how they can play a role in greening the economy and embrace the opportunity to be part of the solution to climate change.
The site serves as a resource to raise awareness of the importance of going green across a variety of industries, and provides visitors with practical advice on finding the right green role, and developing their career.
We teamed up with IEMA to produce a video series that helps bring to life the stories of inspiring organisations and individuals who are harnessing green skills for a sustainable future. Available to view through the site, a range of videos offer a glimpse into the green jobs of people working across a range of sectors, providing unique first-person insights into their daily working lives, their motivations, and their advice to others looking for similar roles.
Among those sharing their story with us was Caroline Carlin, Operations and Sustainability Manager at Southampton Football Club.
Did you know that the club has planted 2,750 trees so far as part of its Home Grown Initiative? Southampton FC celebrates every player’s debut for the first team by planting 250 trees in a local school and preserving a further 250 in the Amazon region. This inspiring initiative launched in 2021 as part of the club’s strategy, The Halo Effect which is helping to ensure a sustainable future for the club, its fans and community.
Caroline was instrumental in developing these projects; find out more about her sustainability journey with Southampton FC:
