Our Environmental Management graduates are sought by a wide range of employers.
A popular graduate route is employment in environmental consultancies, where students work to meet client needs on a wide range of areas from conducting sustainability appraisals and environmental impact assessments, designing and delivering renewable energy projects through to conducting ecological surveys.
Many students help to deliver bespoke projects or analyse, propose or develop policies or implement strategies as part of their day-to-day work.
Additionally, many of our graduates go on to work in the public sector, including national and local government, implementing and shaping policies in a wide range of different environmental sectors.
A significant proportion of our graduates also gain employment in the third sector, including working for national and international organisations working in nature conservation, waste management and reduction, sustainable food production or green energy schemes.
After London, Manchester hosts the largest number of planning and environmental consultancies in the UK.
Top employers of our graduates include AECOM, ARUP, , Atkins, BP, EDF Energy, the Environment Agency, Groundwork, HM Government, Jacobs, National Trust, Rolls-Royce, and the Wildlife Trusts.
If you decide not to follow a career in the environmental sector, your wide knowledge base and transferable skills in problem-solving, strategic thinking, teamwork, creativity, and communication fit what most employers are seeking.
