This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a passion for community led development and a desire to help shape the direction of the St Albans Community.

  • Increase community impact on decision making through a major focus on creating a community that is more willing and able to partner with local and national government.
  • Develop and nurture ongoing and new relationships and networks.

This role is dynamic and with the support of a committed management committee, skilled volunteers and SARA’s long history and involvement in the St Albans Community our community organiser will help shape the development of our community.


The role is part time. Approx. 20 hours per week. The funding for the position has been secured for a 12-month contract with the desire to grow this to a permanent full-time position.
