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 Blyth is looking for a volunteer to join the existing team in the role of Lifeboat Administrative Officer.
During its 180-year history, Blyth Lifeboat Station has operated both all-weather and inshore lifeboats and the lifeboat crews have been presented with 16 awards for gallantry. Today's station operates two inshore lifeboats, one B Class and one D Class. The Lifeboat Crew are all volunteers, headed up by the Lifeboat Operations Manager and Deputy Launching Authorities and supported by a Shore Crew team. The wider team includes volunteer fundraisers, shop volunteers and youth education presenters.
The role of the Lifeboat Administrative Officer is to record notes of operational team meetings, to record minutes of Lifeboat Management Group meetings and to be the primary contact point on general administrative matters of interest to the lifeboat station.
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 have good communication, organisation and IT skills and a knowledge of or willingness to learn about the local station this could be the role for you.
