Job Description - EXPIRED

The RNLI shops started life as simple cake stalls, run by volunteers and their supporters to raise money for the local Lifeboats and stations. These stalls started selling commemorative RNLI products in around 1920 and quickly moved on to selling souvenirs and Christmas cards. The first shop to be run as part of an actual station opened in 1990. 

Today we operate in excess of 160 RNLI shops based inland and on the coast across the UK and Ireland, attracting almost 1 million visitors every year selling an excellent range of unique and competitively priced products ranging from jams to clothing, and key-rings and buckets to model boats and sweatshirts, all to raise vital funds for our volunteer crew members and lifeguards.

Do you have some spare time each week that you could donate to the RNLI to ensure that there is adequate volunteer cover for the shop?  If you like organising things and enjoy being part of a friendly team this might be the role for you.  A background in retail is not essential, just the ability to co-ordinate the weekly rota and know who to call next if somebody is unable to cover one of the shifts, as well as get on with people from different walks of life.  You will receive relevant training for this and be welcomed into a friendly local team.  Could you help the shop team to make our customers’ experience an inspiring one?
