We’re looking for a Macctastic Secretary to help shape a greener Macclesfield

Macclesfield’s environmental campaigning group is looking for a keen volunteer to take on our Secretary role. If you want to see your town lead the way in tackling climate change, reducing waste and being a home for nature as well as for people – then keep reading.

As our Secretary, you won’t just be typing minutes (though that’s important) – you’ll be working closely with our Chair and organising group to help coordinate and organise exciting events, manage our membership effectively and support the group to run smoothly and effectively to make the difference we all want to see.

Whether you are younger, older, studying, working full time or retired - if you’ve got a passion for a sustainable Macclesfield and would like to support us we want to hear from you - we recognise everyone has different commitments and can be flexible about how this works.
