Join our innovative team

Flexibility

We pride ourselves on flexibility, to fit every sort of person that would like to volunteer with Sustainable Transport Midlands. Here’s how we provide this flexibility to our team.

Location, location, location

All our positions are primarily home working-based. We do not have any permanent offices, although you may be required to travel for meetings, conferences, and other external events. Where appropriate, we can organise these events to be virtual, as most internal meetings are now.

We are looking into new offices across our operating region, so teams can work together, socialise, and collaborate with ease, without using Google Meet or an equivalent tool, limiting interaction.

Timings and work patterns

You can put as much or as little time as you want into Sustainable Transport Midlands. We recommend five hours per week for each volunteer, although depending on your position, this can differ (see the main volunteering homepage).

We are also flexible on holiday - just let us know in advance that you won’t be free and we’ll limit the amount of work we assign you. Just remember to give us a rough estimation of how long you’ll be gone.

Mental health

At Sustainable Transport Midlands, we understand stress and mental health can be a big guiding factor in someone's life. As a result, if you feel stressed or if there’s a problem in your personal or work life, please let us know, and we will try to support you. If you’d rather not tell us, please just inform us that you’d like to take a leave of absence, and we’ll try to organise this for you.

We do not discriminate, and we are understanding and caring towards everyone, no matter who they are or what they suffer from. Sustainable Transport Midlands is an inclusive not-for-profit.
