Renewable energy jobs growing four times faster than rest of UK market

Some new workforce insights:

The number of jobs being created in the renewable energy industry is growing four times faster than the overall UK employment market, it has emerged.

Data shows that 2.2% of all new UK jobs have been classified as “green”, although concerns are rising over London’s dominance in the sector.

The number of green jobs advertised has almost trebled in the last year, equating to 336,000 roles, according to the second edition of consultancy PwC’s annual green jobs barometer.

However, more than one-third of these roles are based in London and the south-east, particularly in professional and scientific roles.

Scotland, which dominates the UK’s onshore and offshore wind market, has the highest proportion of green jobs, at 3.3%, up from 1.7% last year. Read the full article on The Guardian.
