The jobs listed
below were located either through the Internet, or else found in the classified sections in various Newspapers and Magazines. Jobs are either linked through to a webpage, or else require you to email them.

We now try to refresh this jobs page weekly (yup it's no longer listed in metric fortnight chunks, due to the arrival of the Euro) so it should come out every Wednesday morning. Jobs past their 'sell-by-date', are also archived- so that future generations can look back in wonder to the days when as long as you could spell contaminted land you could pick up a job.

Why the change ? - well the old format was getting unwieldy, and now that Mugabe has won his elections (E ba gum it were close!), we felt it was time for a new jobs-pageto be tough on re-education, tough on the causes of re-education(although gay old Labour - oops that should read "gay new labour" - has found that a vazectomy, just like cabinet reshuffle, can be painful, still it Byers time with the voters). But, as both Tony Blair and John Major know it is always difficult to get rid of old buddies, so do let us know if you think that Neil Vaz / Keith Hamilton should be reinstated?

Well well, as Harold Wilson said a week in politics is a long time, and we have just had a couple of requests to go back to the old way of doing things. So rather than sending the jobs listing off for 'Re-education and Self-criticism' we decided to do a plain old-fashioned 'fudge' and are going to chuck the whole lot in together and hope that in the rash of 'Henmania' no one will notice until 'the good Goran' has aced his second serve !

So what does this mean, well we shall email out last weeks jobs every Wednesday in table format (so that you can scan them quickly and surreptitiously just in case you boss suddenly wants to look at that spreadsheet you are working on!).

If you want the full slug of listings (going back a month or so) they are listed in the list below (oh oh, I think I've a bit of got the curse of the recursive classes here), on a separate page so as not to make it too unwieldy.


From the sublime to the ridiculous

In the previous millennium we tried to refresh our listings on the 5th, 15th and 25th of the month. However, as the world has moved on a bit since then (and the volume of jobs has increased) we now list on a weekly basis.

Our current jobs listing contains environmental job listings gleaned from the Web (EBM, Edie, ENDS, Careers in Construction erc), and from various publications (Economist, New Scientist, Guardian, Times, Telegraph, various GIS publications etc).

Unfortunately some of the links to these jobs do not go straight to a webpage with full details of the the actual job listed. To get round this somewhat major irritation we have put in a link with email details, (which are in italics to warn you) in advance. The jobs we list do try to include the word environmental somewhere in the job description, however be warned that they sometimes do include ones that are:-

  • sublime:- Nature Reserve Manager, Royal Society for Nature Conservation, Seychelles,10 500-11 000
    The job description states - Work on this exceptional tropical nature reserve with millions of turtles, seabirds, endemics and a coral reef. Please note that the island is not suitable for children. (is that because of the endemics?)
  • ridiculous:- Flushing Chemical Cleaning + Chlorination Engineer, International Personnel Solutions, Berkshire
    The job description states - The role involves travel to many sites around the UK, a vehicle will be provided. This is a labourers position. (does this mean they are looking for a Bog Attendant?)

Anyway, enough of this execrable latrinal humour, the listings are 'purged' at the end of the month, and job offers that are no longer valid are 'flushed out' of our 'cistern', oops sorry system...

This means that there may be some 'backlog' of time-expired jobs awaiting 'peristalsis' by the third listing at the end of the month. If you find that this worries you, just think of it like the Human Genome - lots of spare genes floating around that once were useful (such as the gene that helped Neanderthal man avoid sabre tooth tigers)

If you would like us to include in our listings, a job vacancy that you have, there is no charge, just fill out the
submit a job vacancy form. But do remember that you will need to include your email address for us to verify that the job offered is legit!

Equally if you haven't found the perfect job and want to post up your CV on the website, just fill out the host a one page CV form.


EBM and the Metric Fortnight

This jobs listing was initially based on a service from Environment Business Magazine (EBM) called
'JobLink', - which lists nearly a dozen categories of environmental vacancies currently advertised in the UK. The Joblink listing is updated twice a week.

EBM kindly gave us permission to reformat and summarise the vacancies in order to give a 'snap-shot' rolling 10 day summary of their listings.

Loyal readers will know that in the twilight of the 20th Century we used to list the Environment Business Magazine job summaries a metric fortnight in arrears - but the EEC have still not decided what exactly a metric fortnight is (yes we thought it was 10 days as well !)

After taking legal advice from that nice Mr Wolf T Flywheel (of 'Sue Grabbit and Runne' - purveyors of exceedingly good writs) it was decided that in order to avoid the Commission taking out even more revenge on the British Beef Farmers (fancy 50 years after the event, they are still mad about the fact it was British Bully Beef that fed the victorious Tommies !) we would list the jobs as they appeared.

If you wish to have the Up-to-date Current Week's jobs summary (leaving those beurocrats in Brussels to wrestle with the concept of a metric fortnight) you can have them sent to you as an email in the early part of the week, (i.e. as they come in hot off the Internet, and have been cleaned of unwholesome spam)

This way you can pretend to be reading 'mission critical' email - useful if your boss is spying on you to make sure you don't access the Web in company time to look for a new job !

send me the Employer job listings by email

(B) send me the Location job listings by email

(C) send me the Title job listings by email

The raw lists are available on the EBM site at both in 'Framed' and 'Unframed' format.

Access to the EBM website (which depending on its mood, either sometimes accepts frame challenged browsers, or else just looks blank!) is completely free, with no need to try and remember your password (written with Tippex on the back of your sister's hampster - which you 'accidentally' let the next door's dachshund get friendly with, before you learned that they are used in Kazakhstan to hunt badgers !).

Anyway how else are you going to get away with the 'rodent' being labelled 'Swordfish' unless you tell her, that under the terms of the 1992 Protection of Badgers Act, the presence of a Badger Sett can result in considerable construction delays! So then the 64 euro question is 'When is a Badger Sett not a Badger Sett' and the answer of course is 'when its a Marmo Sett'

Edie hosts a online environmental job centre where anyone can post jobs wanted and jobs offered adverts free of charge. You can also search through current vacancies and jobseekers, by country and/or industry sector.

There is also a free jobfinder service, which performs an automatic search every day, sending out free email alerts of any suitable matches found.

The bad news is that it uses frames, and you may need to get Ali G round to rescue tha hampsta !



ENDS also do a jobs listing, but you once again need to use your hampster. However the ENDS site is easy-going and happily accepts non-framed browsers (which is very good news in this 'java-shocked' world we live in).

It also has none of the 'heavy parent' dress-code attitude of some websites that tell you to 'sod-off' and get yourself a haircut / tie / version 4 browser before they will let you flash through their hallowed portal.
