Job Description - EXPIRED

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 Mablethorpe is looking for a volunteer Level 2 Lifeboat Medical Adviser.

Covering part of the Lincolnshire coastline, Mablethorpe Lifeboat Station operates two inshore lifeboats - an Atlantic 75 and a D class. The crews have been presented with nine awards for gallantry. 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 the Level 2 Lifeboat Medical Adviser is to conduct medical examinations for enrolled crew and shore helpers in line with RNLI medical standards, to act as an ambassador for the practice of excellent casualty care at the lifeboat station and to keep the Lifeboat Operations Manager and Lifeboat Management Group Chairman regularly appraised of medical matters.

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 good communicator with the ability to maintain trust and integrity, hold a current licence to be on the List of Registered Medical Practitioners, have Medical Negligence Indemnity Insurance and have not yet retired from General Practice, this could be the role for you.
