Circular Jobs Definition Framework

March 16, 2021
Jobs & Skills

A shift to a circular economy will impact labour markets around the world: while some jobs will disappear or change in nature, new jobs will emerge. Certain combinations of skills will become more important, and workers and employers will be required to develop new mindsets to adapt to changing working practices. But what are circular jobs exactly? And how can we ensure the transition to the circular economy is positive for work and workers? Our circular jobs definition framework defines circular jobs, with examples of jobs that contribute to the circular economy, and explains how this is used in Circle Economy's Circular Jobs Monitor, an online tool that gathers and displays the number and range of jobs that are part of the circular economy.
