Job Description - EXPIRED

The RNLI's Lifeboat Station at New Quay, Wales, is seeking new Volunteer Lifeboat Crew members to join its existing team.

For over 150 years the lifeboat crews and lifeboats of New Quay have covered part of Cardigan Bay where, today, sailing, fishing and other water sports are among the main attractions.

The New Quay Lifeboat Crew, who have been presented with 10 awards for gallantry, are all volunteers. The team is headed up by the Lifeboat Operations Manager and supported by a shore crew team who are responsible for helping to launch the two lifeboats, managing the safety of the area during a launch and refueling and servicing the boats when they return from a 'shout' or training exercise. All boat and shore crew follow the RNLI's national Competency Based Training Scheme. The boat and shore crew respond to pagers when there is a request to launch the lifeboats.

The station now needs new lifeboat crew to join the team at New Quay.

No previous maritime experience needed and you must live or work within 2.5 miles of the station, be between 17 and 55 years of age and generally fit.

This is a great opportunity to:
*Join a motivated, fun and enthusiastic local team
*Meet new people within your community
*Have the satisfaction of helping to save lives at sea
*Build on skills and experience within a leading national charity

To find out more email: or phone the station on 01545 560 311.

TPP is committed to equal opportunities and actively encourages applications from all sectors of the community. We shortlist based on competencies and not on race, religion, sex, physical or mental disability, or age.
