Formerly unemployed (especially laid-off coalminers) and underemployed people are hired on to work-crews that staff Coalfield Development’s social enterprises. These work-crews support a variety of projects that create assets for local residents, communities and businesses. By offering positions in the industries of real estate development, solar energy, sustainable construction, mine-land reclamation, wood working, agriculture, and artisan trades, we are working to promote a diversified economy in counties where, for a considerable time, coal was a singular way to make an honest living.
As a result, the entrepreneurs pioneering them, the crew members working within them, and the region hosting them can develop toward full potential. To learn about upcoming and current employment opportunities check out our Job Board.
