Environmental Consulting Jobs

Environmental Consulting Overview

Environmental Consulting is an expansive field that encompasses a number of professional occupations including Geographers and Sustainability Advisors. Individuals who adopt the role of consultant may be self-employed or employed by a consulting agency. They provide a variety of temporary contract services to private companies, government agencies and other organizations. Environmental Consultants design surveys, conduct laboratory tests and examine policies to help their client identify potential environmental hazards. Results are delivered in the form of written reports and presentations to decision-makers within the client organization.

Environmental Consulting Education Requirements

While some specific training may be provided by the consulting agency, the Environmental Consulting field demands that professionals possess a thorough grasp of complex and technical subject matter. A bachelor's degree is considered the minimum for entry for most positions. Many individuals pursue a more advanced degree. Job seekers should have a sound education in geography, chemistry, biology and other natural sciences. A practical understanding of environmental law and local policy is also vital for successful Environmental Consultants.

Individuals who wish to pursue a career in Environmental Consulting should be self-motivated and capable of working independently. As consultants, they must be able to speak from a position of authority to provide accurate and detailed guidance to the client organization. Since most employment is done under contract, positions at a particular organization or company are usually short-lived.

Environmental Consulting Job Market

The impact of human civilization on the environment continues to grow. So does the need for qualified Environmental Consultants. Employment for consulting specialists in the field is expected to grow by 28 percent between 2008 and 2018, a much greater projected growth than the majority of occupations. Individuals interested in the field can also pursue careers in environmental health as well as environmental sustainability.

Environmental Consulting Jobs Salary

Environmental Consultants earned a median annual wage of more than $61,000 in 2009. Of these, the lowest 10 percent had an annual salary of $37,000 or less, while the top 10 percent of earners saw an income of more than $122,000.
