Circle Economy is an impact organisation that connects and empowers a global community to create the conditions for transformation towards the circular economy. They do this by developing practical and scalable insights and solutions for cities, nations and businesses. The Circular Jobs Initiative is a knowledge centre within Circle Economy that aims to ensure the transition to the circular economy is positive for work and workers. With skills as one of its key focus areas, the Circular Jobs Initiative develops knowledge on the skills needed in the circular economy and how education and training pathways can both adapt to changes and be drivers of sustainable development. Esther leads the growth and strategic direction of the Circular Jobs Initiative. Her work focuses on bringing labour market issues central to agenda setting around circular economy and green policies, and that the circular economy is understood by educators and decision-makers more widely.
