Sustainable Merton is Merton’s leading environmental charity. We work to engage residents, community groups, and businesses in Merton in sustainability issues and the current Climate Emergency.

We are very reliant on attracting funding to support our work, through fundraising and bidding to other sources of income.
We have been running our Community Champions project for a number of years and currently have around 58 volunteer Champions registered with us.
The role of the Community Champions Project Manager and Volunteer Coordinator is to communicate and meet with our team of volunteers, support the activity they do, and represent the work of the Charity. We would expect you to build relationships with organisations, businesses and funders to ensure the long term sustainability of the project.
