Environment Jobs

Paid environment jobs, especially jobs in the field, are becoming more competitive than ever.  Even entry level environmental jobs require a significant amount of experience.  Frontier’s volunteer programmes are an excellent way to gain the real-world skills that environmental conservation organisations are looking for.

How can Frontier help me get a job in the environmental sector?

Landing your dream environmental job means an opportunity to work with like-minded people for a cause that you are truly passionate about.  Volunteers on Frontier’s projects have the opportunity to experience work in every aspect of conservation - from environmental education and community development to scientific research in ecology.  When you volunteer with Frontier you’ll be working alongside professional scientists, teachers and project managers who will train you in the skills you need to begin your environmental career.  Frontier’s community of conservation professionals can also come in handy for advice on how to go on and get paid environment jobs.  Frontier also believes strongly in recruiting from within, and many of our Principal Investigators and Project Managers began their careers as volunteers just like you.

What are environment jobs like?

If you are unsure about what environment jobs are truly like, volunteering is a great way to test whether or not a career in the field is right for you.  Environmental field work is incredibly rewarding and exciting, but it’s not everybody’s cup of tea, and sometimes the only way to know for sure is to give something a try.  Frontier’s environmental projects are in some of the most remote, and therefore ecologically diverse, locations around the world, so you’ll get a great sense of what life will be like in an environmental job. Regardless of whether you go on to pursue a career in the field, on a Frontier project you’ll get to volunteer alongside equally passionate, enthusiastic people and contribute to some truly significant international conservation work.
