2019 edition of the Geoscientists Employment Survey

In 2018, EFG has conducted the first edition of its new annual employment survey which gathers information about the employment situation of geoscientists across Europe and beyond. The survey has been answered by 740 participants in 2018 who provided information about their academic qualifications, current work conditions, professional experience, areas of activities, salaries, and their professional mobility.

The objective of the 2019 survey is to analyse the labour market for geologists in Europe: In which industries do professional geologists work? Are their activities related to their training? Do they exploit the job opportunities in other European countries? Which are the prospects for the future? The information gathered in this survey is useful for the EFG, for national professional associations, and for individual geologists, our members:

  • It gives geologists a better overview of their labour opportunities in Europe, helping them to construct their studies and careers
  • It allows professional associations to offer better services to members, helping them to find jobs and supporting the mentor program for young professionals.
  • It provides evidence for professional associations to pursue the policy dialogue with universities and education authorities improving the training of geologists.

The survey is going to be available until the 31st of October. You can complete the survey below, or at this external page, in English,

or choose one of the national languages prepared by EFG’s National Associations:

Participation in the survey takes approximately 10 minutes.
