greenjobs.de - the jobboard for the green-minded



Elevator Pitch

The economy turns green in many ways: Sustainable consumption, renewable energies, energy efficiency, and more classical fields like waste management are mega-trends these days. Experts estimate that 2 million people work in “green jobs” in Germany (2008).
In 2000, Uwe Trenkner and Jan Strohschein had the wish to establish an online job-board for the green-minded. greenjobs was started in 2000 as a not-for-profit side-project. The founders who still run the site today both have a “green” background in environmental policy and rural planning. From the beginning the goal was to target the whole green-job market, from companies in renewable energies, research and educational institutions, service providers but also grassroot initiatives and other NGOs.
Over the years the platform grew both in terms of the number of published job-offers as well as publicity in general.
With the ever-growing time and effort to maintain greenjobs.de we decided to commercialize greenjobs in 2011. It turned out that most of our regular customers (=the employers) understood our need for funding and remained loyal customers. The business also attracted many new customers to which the commercialization signaled a higher level of professionalism.

Product

greenjobs is one of the best known green jobboards for the German speaking market with currently more than 600 open positions and a growing database of profiles from job-seekers. greenjobs provides an online platform for job-seekers and for emloyers in the green business sector. Whereas job-seekers can advertise their profiles for free, employers are charged for the listing of their job offers. Employers can choose from several options for their job posting(s): from the low-budget posting in standard layout to designed postings in line with the recruiters CI to plans for high-volume recruiters.
Customers are satisfied by the unique mix of applications they receive if they post their jobs on greenjobs: from highly specialized people to real „green-minded“ people who are an asset for employers in the green business sector.
Job-seekers, on the other hand, appreciate the special mix of job-postings which range from engineering positions to environmental science and rural planning to CSR and sustainability to environmental education. This compilation of diverse green job offers is unrivaled on the German speaking internet.
Since we only cover a small fraction of the market we believe that there is still a large business potential for greenjobs.
