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 Courtown is looking for a volunteer to take on the role of Deputy Launching Authority.

Situated in a village on the South East coast of Ireland, Courtown Lifeboat Station has provided search and rescue cover for over 75 years.  Today, the station operates an inshore D class lifeboat.  The Lifeboat Station is currently looking for a Deputy Launching Authority to join the existing team.

The role of DLA is to authorise launch of the lifeboat, provide leadership in the absence of the Lifeboat Operations Manager or as delegated and ensure that all operational activities are carried out to maintain the lifeboat and all associated equipment in a constant state of readiness for launching on service.

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 leadership skills and local maritime knowledge this could be the role for you. You must be between 17 and 70 years of age.
