The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. We provide, on call, a 24 hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the UK and Ireland, and a seasonal lifeguard service. With our lifeboats, lifeguards, safety messages and flood rescue we are committed to saving more lives.
The RNLI's Lifeboat Station in Larne, Co. Antrim is looking for volunteers to join the existing team in the role of Inshore Lifeboat Crew.
Larne Lifeboat Station was established in 1994 and lifeboats have been launching into the waters of East Antrim and the North Channel from Larne ever since. Today we operate an inshore D class lifeboat and an all-weather Trent class lifeboat.
The role of ILB Crew is to undertake and maintain Competency Based Training as necessary to fulfil the role of crew member, to be on call for lifeboat 'shouts', to attend exercises and to contribute to the overall upkeep of the station, lifeboats and equipment.
This is a good opportunity to join a motivated and enthusiastic local team and have the satisfaction of contributing to saving lives at sea.
If you are a team player with good general fitness and the ability to learn new skills this could be the role for you. No previous maritime experience needed. You must live or work within a suitable distance from the station and be between 17 and 65 years of age.
