We all know the importance of doing our bit for the world wherever we can, whether it’s by using energy efficient light bulbs or donating to good causes. But what about making things better through your job? There is a growing range of jobs that can help to make the world a better place.

In particular, charity jobs and environment jobs are very important when it comes to increasing the sustainability of our lifestyles and making things better for everyone. This makes them very attractive fields to work in and they’re becoming more and more popular.

So, what kind of charity jobs could you do to help make the world a better place? As you might expect, one of the main roles of lots of charity staff is fundraising. Charities need money to carry out their good work, whether they’re delivering aid in Africa, working with disadvantaged kids in the UK or promoting a particular freedom or issue.

Sometimes this fundraising is done over the phone, while other times it’s done face to face. Projects also need to be developed so that there is something to raise money for, grants need to be applied for and the work itself actually needs to be carried out and publicised. This means that charity jobs are very diverse, and could involve anything from talking to people in the street to raise awareness, to working on cutting edge research projects and analysing the impact of the charity’s work.

Environment jobs are similarly diverse, meaning that they can be great for everyone from people looking for their first job out of education right up to highly experienced and skilled engineers and other professionals. For instance, if you work in the environment sector, you could find yourself promoting environmental causes or arranging clean-up operations at local landmarks.

You could alternatively find yourself work on solutions for cleaner energy, selling environmentally-friendly products to businesses or engineering new products to improve the world around us.

Overall, this means that there are lots of different ways in which you could help to make the world a better place through your job. Whether you work on the front line of a charity or behind the scenes developing cutting edge environmental strategy, every job is important. This makes it a great time to make the move into a job that helps others as well as yourself, so why not keep this in mind the next time you find yourself looking for a new role?
