Job Description - EXPIRED

Would you like to be part of a happy band of volunteers that are helping to save lives at sea without even getting wet? Could you respond to a call to action from a local school, youth group or event in your community and deliver messages about the work of the RNLI and staying safe near water to groups of eager children?

Volunteering as part of the RNLI's Education Team is an important role within the charity as we aim to save the lives of young people through our fantastic education programme. A message given today could be a life saved tomorrow.

Your role would be to engage with young people to deliver our vital water safety messages alongside promoting the work of the RNLI to inspire and motivate the next generation of RNLI supporters.

Just as we give all our Lifeboat crews the right training and equipment to carry out their lifesaving work, we provide Education Volunteers with all the necessary training and support to carry out their role effectively. Education volunteers have access to a range of online learning materials, as well as opportunities for one to one support from fellow volunteers and RNLI education specialists.

As an Education volunteer you will have the opportunity to meet lots of new people and develop your skills in talking to young people. After their first mission as Education Presenters our volunteers often say: 'I feel like I am performing an important public service, and it's good to be a part of that'.

Please join us in making a difference to the safety of young people.

This is a volunteer opportunity within the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are people who, unpaid and of their own free will, contribute their time, energy and skills to support the purposes of the RNLI. RNLI volunteers may perform a variety of tasks and duties, under direction and guidance, using their skills, knowledge and time to help the RNLI best achieve its objectives.

We respect and honour our volunteers by building trust and understanding. Such a partnership is not intended to be a legally binding contract or to have mutuality of obligation, but instead express a voluntary two-way commitment where everyone gains satisfaction from being part of our organisation.
