Frequently Asked Questions

We’re here to help you understand the conservation job landscape, where you might fit in – especially with all your lovely transferrable skills – and to help you form a plan of action to make your dream career a reality.
I’d start by reading our guides aimed at Career Switchers such as yourself, especially the following two guides:
  • How to switch careers into conservation | Top ten questions answered. In this detailed guide we answer the top ten questions we get asked at Conservation Careers by career switchers. We also share the advice from some of the key figures in the industry, and provide links at the end of the piece to our free resources and ways to get support in your career journey. If you want to switch careers into conservation, you’re in the right place!
  • Switching careers into conservation | A snapshot of jobs. Many career switchers worry that it’s too late to change careers. They worry that they’ll have to retrain only to compete with recent graduates, or that their skills won’t be recognised. At the core of all these concerns is one question: Are there actually opportunities for career switchers in conservation? Is it worth it? The truth is there are more conservation jobs available for career switchers than you’ve probably imagined, and career switcher skills are often in demand. If you feel alone, overwhelmed or anxious about making a career switch, we hope this Ultimate Guide will show you that your skills and passion are needed.
On our site we also categorise jobs for career switchers now directly, to make it easier for you to see what employers are recruiting for without any background in conservation often. See here.
Finally, I’d strongly recommend you check out our online training course the Conservation Career Kick-starter. It’s designed to help career switchers like yourself to understand the conservation job landscape, where you might fit in (especially with all your lovely transferrable skills) and to help you form a plan of action to make your dream career a reality. You get support from us via email and monthly Zoom calls also and is a great way to get clear, get ready and get hired more quickly. See here.

We encourage people to engage in the course as early as possible. Through it you will learn which role is right for you, and what additional training/skills/experiences you might need in order to become fully employable.

The earlier you start the more time you’ll have.

All memberships of the Conservation Careers Academy come with a 7 day free trail. If you choose to become a paying member, you’ll also get a 7 day money-back guarantee. If you’re 100% not happy, we’ll give you a refund.

After this period, refunds are not eligible and it’s your responsibility to manage your membership.
