Your image is too large - you need to scale it to the size of your div. You can do this in CSS like so
line 5 of your html file change background-image to
  background:url("http://writing-jobs-uk.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/green-energy.jpg") no-repeat;
  background-size: 500px 250px;
  ...
}

Open in new window


Add the width and height to the background declaration

However, As Usual, this won't work in IE8 so alternatively resize your image or look here
