The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea, but it's not limited to launching a lifeboat or providing lifeguards to save lives.
Community Safety fulfils one of the four strands of the RNLI's concept of operations, saving live at sea by providing free education and advice and facilitating other interventions through Community Lifesaving Plans.
The Coastal Safety Officer is a pivotal role in the implementation of a Community Lifesaving Plan, working with the Community Incident Reduction Manager and the local Lifeboat Station to design and implement the local plan. A Community Lifesaving Plan is aimed at reducing fatalities and serious incidents by targeting particular "at risk" groups with specifically targeted interventions.
This volunteer opportunity would suit somebody who has an understanding of marine based and waterside activity in the local area covered by the plan. You should have strong organisational and interpersonal skills as you will be the first point of contact with the public whilst building and maintaining partnerships with other local stakeholders who have an interest or responsibility in saving lives in the area. The role may also involve managing a team of volunteers who will deliver interventions identified in the plan.
This is a great volunteer opportunity for someone who is PC competent and can be effective both within a team and on a stand-alone basis. If you would like to join a friendly, dedicated and motivated team and fit the criteria above or, have some of the required skills and would like to develop further in this area, we would like to hear from you. Training will be provided to ensure a full knowledge of the RNLI and in particular the work of Community Safety.
