Job Description - EXPIRED

The RNLI's Lifeboat Station in Dunbar is looking to hear from anyone in the community who would be interested in volunteering for the RNLI as a Volunteer Shore Crew member to join its existing team. All of the crew are volunteers and many will say that it's a way of life and will testify that you get out what you put in!

Given the nature of life-boating the pager can go off at any time of the day or night therefore, there is often an element of unsociable hours. Being part of the team means you're available to respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week and committing to an extensive RNLI training program which will turn you into a lifeboat shore crew member is all part of the deal!

All of our crew follow the RNLI's national Competency Based Training Scheme and will provide you with first class training and support to ensure that you have everything that you need to help us save lives at sea.

The station now needs new volunteer shore crew to join the team at Dunbar.
No previous maritime experience needed.
Must live or work in Dunbar.

This is a great opportunity to join a motivated, fun and enthusiastic local team whilst meeting new people within your community. You will have the satisfaction of helping to save lives at sea whilst all of the time you are building on skills and experience within a leading national charity.

To find out more, come along and meet the team at the Lifeboat Station on Sunday 14th June between the hours of 12 noon and 4pm.

This is a volunteer opportunity within the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are people who, unpaid and of their own free will, contribute their time, energy and skills to support the purposes of the RNLI. RNLI volunteers may perform a variety of tasks and duties, under direction and guidance, using their skills, knowledge and time to help the RNLI best achieve its objectives.

We respect and honour our volunteers by building trust and understanding. Such a partnership is not intended to be a legally binding contract or to have mutuality of obligation, but instead express a voluntary two-way commitment where everyone gains satisfaction from being part of our organisation.

TPP is committed to equal opportunities and actively encourages applications from all sectors of the community. We shortlist based on competencies and not on race, religion, sex, physical or mental disability, or age.
