Sustainable St Albans is actively recruiting for new people to join the existing trustee group. You need to bring time and enthusiasm, and some knowledge of sustainability and the district, and a commitment to the work and ethos of Sustainable St Albans. We are seeking a number of new trustees to join the existing trustee board of eight.
Previous board or trustee experience is not necessary, and we welcome applications from people of all ages and backgrounds.
We are currently seeking individuals with particular skills in one of these areas: fundraising, digital – such as data management and on-line systems and human resources. However, an enthusiasm for our shared vision is of course paramount and all interested individuals will be considered on their own merit too.
Trustees can benefit by building relationships in the community, helping us reach new audiences and focus on developing our vision for a netzero future.
Current Trustees say:
- “I have learned a great deal about the governance of a charity, the workings of a growing voluntary organisation, and gained plenty of transferrable skills that have impacted how I grow my sustainability knowledge and understanding, at home and work.”
- “I like being able to support a group that is working tirelessly to combat the climate and ecological emergency. Being a trustee allows me to use my relatively unrelated skills to help the group push forwards and make change in my district.”
As a small but growing charity, we have not yet reached the point where we have permanent staff. This means our trustees are necessarily ‘hands on’, giving opportunities for active and engaged discussions that help ‘move the needle’ on action in the District.

Get in touch for an initial informal chat. Interested individuals will be invited to observe two meetings and then discuss impressions and interest in an informal interview.
