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 Troon is looking for a volunteer to lead the existing team in the role of Lifeboat Operations Manager (LOM).

Established in 1871, the lifeboat station at Troon covers the lower Firth of Clyde with its two lifeboats – a D class inshore lifeboat and a Trent class all-weather lifeboat. Crew members have received three RNLI medals 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 LOM is to authorise launch of the lifeboats, provide leadership of the operations team 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 3 miles of the station and be between 17 and 70 years of age.

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