In 2021, Icon will undertake labour market research to uncover the state of the UK conservation workforce.
We want to gain a comprehensive understanding of the sector’s composition and current challenges and opportunities facing the labour market. We will investigate things like demographics, skills, qualifications, salaries and benefits. The result will be a new labour market intelligence report, free for all members and stakeholders to use.
Some of you may be aware that we had initially planned to complete this research in 2020, however given the upheaval over the last year the research had to be put on hold. We are now delighted to confirm that we are able restart this important work.
However, we know we can’t do this alone. We need your input by participating in Icon’s labour market intelligence survey!
To complete the research, we need people representing an employer organisation or operating as a self-employed person or freelancer in the conservation sector to fill in the survey. This will help us to build a representative sample of conservation employers to ensure that we accurately represent all areas of conservation practice and employment settings across the UK.
How to take part
To take part all we need is for you to complete this short survey by 1st September 2021. This will help us to ensure we build an accurate sample pool. Once complete, we will then review the responses to ensure that we have a full representative sample to begin the research.
The survey will then be sent to the sample pool in September 2021. The final report will then be shared with members and stakeholders towards the end of 2021.
