About the role

The role of an Environment Action Volunteer is a diverse yet rewarding one. It will give you the opportunity to encourage positive behavioural change by offering practical support to community projects, as well as providing advice to friends, family, neighbours and the wider public to motivate them to take action to reduce their environmental impact.

Our roles cover a wide variety of activities such as:

  • Composting
  • Food waste
  • Reusable nappies
  • Recycling
  • Environment and carbon awareness

You do not need to have any prior knowledge of waste or environmental topics to apply, although having an interest would be beneficial.
