The Advertiser - Careers - - Front Page -

SKILLED en­vi­ron­men­tal ad­vis­ers will be more dif­fi­cult to find once the car­bon tax is im­ple­mented on July 1, Kelly Sci­en­tific Re­sources warns busi­nesses.

Direc­tor Paul O’Brien says busi­nesses have no time to waste be­fore devel­op­ing strate­gies to pre­pare for the new tax.

Sus­tain­abil­ity prac­tices and poli­cies should be at the fore­front of busi­ness plan­ning.

‘‘ The chal­lenge Aus­tralian busi­nesses face is that this sec­tor is rel­a­tively new, which means cur­rent de­mand far out­weighs the num­ber of skilled and ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sional,’’ he says.

‘‘ This short­age is only go­ing to get worse post the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the car­bon tax.’’
