Green Careers Hour


The NHS Estates and Facilities Team from NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I) will be represented at the virtual Green Careers Hour on Thursday, November 4 at 10am. 

This is a national careers event from Learn Live and supported by The Careers & Enterprise Company, that will reach thousands of school and college students in the coming months, featuring employers from across the economy that provide ‘green jobs’. It will include a pre-recorded piece from Lucy Rowe, Young Persons and Diversity Lead with the Estates & Facilities Commercial Directorate at NHSE/I. A live Q&A session will follow, at which Ian Stenton, NHSE/I’s National Sustainability Programme Manager will join Lucy to answer specific questions about greener jobs in the NHS. 

Green jobs are defined as employment in an activity that directly contributes to – or indirectly supports – the achievement of the UK’s net zero emissions target and other environmental goals. The aim will be to demystify what is meant by “green jobs” (both for young people and those advising them) and to inspire students to consider the different pathways and future careers options that they open up, including HE, technical and apprenticeship routes. Students are able to attend online either live on the day or to access the content through a recording.

Please share with any young people in your life who may be interested in a Green Career. More information here.
