All our projects and events are run by local people – who give up their time for free – because they are passionate about the environment, and want to make a difference.
These are our current vacancies: we would love you to join the community here!
Types of Roles
We are 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.
You can find more details on the role here.
Get in touch for an initial informal chat, virtual or real.
Administration and Co-ordination of Projects
Our projects are all volunteer run. We always need extra group members, to enable us to do even more.
The groups muck-in together and divide up the things that need doing between them. They are friendly and approachable. Most meet in the evenings.
Groups which particularly need new members currently are the schools group, the thermal imaging camera group, the events group, and the Repair Fairs, but all our groups would be delighted to hear from enthusiastic new people.
- Our schools group is looking for an educator who can help restart the Sustainable Schools Training Day.
- Our Repair Fairs need extra Fixers who are great are getting broken things (electricals, clothes, bikes) going again.
Fundraising and Development
Researching funders and drafting funding applications, either for SSA as a whole or for a particular project.
Volunteering at our stalls or events

Our Events Team and the Our Planet Our Future team (in Harpenden) both need 2-3 more people who can help plan, arrange, promote and run these events. The Our Planet Our Future team is particularly looking for a volunteer who could help us run hybrid events.
Become a Climate Champion and talk at events about climate change and local action. We are currently building up a group of people who are comfortable to speak at events about the climate, why action is important, and what SSA does. Training provided on climate issues and speaking in public.
