Job Description

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

For 110 years, the station at Helvick Head operated an all-weather lifeboat until it closed in 1969.  After a gap of 28 years, the station re-opened and today operates a B class Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat.

The Lifeboat Crew are all volunteers, headed up by the Lifeboat Operations Manager and Deputy Launching Authorities and supported by a Shore Crew team. All boat and shore crew follow the RNLI’s national Competency Based Training Scheme and respond to pagers when there is a request to launch the lifeboats. The wider team includes volunteer fundraisers, shop volunteers and youth education presenters.

The role of DLA is to authorise launch of the lifeboats, 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 lifeboats 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.

Please apply online athttps://volunteering.rnli.org/vacancy/deputy-launching-authority-helvick-308077.html or for further information contact the RNLI’s Volunteering Team on 01202 66 33 46 or by email on volunteering@rnli.org.uk

Alternatively, you can contact the local station on 0584 6511.

We value diversity at TPP and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
