Chicago Green Jobs

Acre Resources, a UK based green recruitment agency, has just opened its first US office right here in Chicago.  Acre has placed thousands of professionals in the Environment, Sustainability, and Climate Change sectors, and a quick survey of their current postings includes some truly fabulous job titles. Environmental Fate Modeller! Ecotoxicologist! Global Head, Carbon Origination! Sales & Marketing Manager!

Sadly, all those jobs are located in England – there’s nothing local posted yet.  The company’s managing director, Andy Cartland, says that even though the green market is growing that it’s still relatively small.  For some context consider this: Acre, which bills itself as the global green recruitment leader, places fewer than 100 people a month in green roles.

Still, Cartland is confident that the need for green jobs is on the rise and he’s betting that Chicago is going to be the next big green business hub in the US.  Acre has opened an office of one here in town with plans to expand if their bet pays off. Help them out by logging your CV (British for resume!) here.
