|Job Title||Volunteer Lifeboat Operations Manager - Youghal, Co. Cork - EXPIRED|
|Contract Type||Temporary / Interim|
|Job Published||07 Nov 2016|
|Contact Name||Volunteers Team|
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 Youghal is looking for a volunteer to lead the existing team in the role of Lifeboat Operations Manager (LOM).
Youghal has had a lifeboat station for over 165 years, and its crews have been awarded six RNLI medals for gallantry. Today’s station operates an inshore B class Atlantic 75 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 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.
