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 The Lizard is looking for a volunteer to lead the existing team in the role of Deputy Launching Authority.

The Lizard Lifeboat Station sits in one of the most remote and rugged settings in the whole of Great Britain - at the foot of a 140ft (45 metre) cliff less than a mile from England's most southerly point. Since 1857 the lifeboat crews and lifeboats of The Lizard Lifeboat Station have covered the area around The Lizard Peninsular and up to 50 miles off shore where, today, sailing, fishing and other water sports are among the main attractions. 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. You must live or work within 6 miles of the station and be between 17 and 70 years of age.

Please apply online or for further information contact the RNLI's Volunteering Team on 01202 663346 or by email on volunteering@rnli.org.uk

Or contact the local station by email The-Lizard@rnli.org.uk or by telephone on 01326 290451
