These jobs for the climate conscious offer professional opportunities that are both meaningful and offer real job satisfaction.

A growing number of highly-paid jobs are being advertised related to climate change and sustainability, a new study suggests.

Jobs such as a chief scientific officer and climate change representative are offering six figure salaries, said jobs site Glassdoor.

Satisfaction

A director of sustainability post was advertised with a salary of £85,000, while a corporate social responsibility manager position was on offer at £44,000.

John Lamphiere of Glassdoor said: "People these days are not just looking for a job, they are looking to align themselves with an organisation and a role that shares their values and beliefs.

"Whether directly or indirectly, these jobs for the climate conscious offer professional opportunities that are both meaningful and offer real job satisfaction."
