Travel specialist C&M Recruitment is to launch a green jobs section on its website.
Employers will be able to advertise all kinds of jobs in this area, detailing the company’s green credentials.
Managing director Angus Chisholm said the move is in response to an emerging trend of job hunters wanting to know how environmentally conscious employers are.
He said: “This will give companies the chance to show prospective employees that they are serious about corporate and social responsibility.
“It may not be a top priority for job seekers during the recession, but it will be in the future and this is something we should prepare for.”
Chisholm is speaking to employers who wish to be part of the scheme ahead of its launch next week.
C&M has recently registered for the Green Achiever Scheme for companies that want to reduce their environmental impact and is embarking on a 12-month action plan.
The recruitment agency is experiencing a downturn in corporate and leisure recruitment, but some areas such as luxury are bucking the trend.
“We are seeing skilled people taking up temporary roles outside travel it’s a case of needs must in this environment,” he said.
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that 57 learning institutions in England will provide the Diploma in Travel and Tourism for 14 to 19-year-olds from September 2010.
The new qualification is expected to improve the standards of candidates entering the travel industry.
