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 Lizard Lifeboat Station sits in one of the most remote and rugged settings in the whole of Great Britain – at the foot of a 140ft (45 metre) cliff less than a mile from England’s most southerly point. Its wild location means that every time the boat is launched, the crew have to run down more than 200 steep steps from the station car-park to the boathouse in Kilcobben Cove.

The RNLI’s Lifeboat Station in The Lizard, Cornwall is looking for volunteers to join the existing team in the role of Shore Crew. The role of Shore Crew is to assist with the launch and recovery of the lifeboats on service and exercise, to maintain competence under Competency Based Training for the role and to contribute to the overall upkeep of the station, lifeboats and equipment.

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 good general fitness and the ability to learn new skills this could be the role for you. You must live or work within a few minutes of the station and be between 17 and 65 years of age.
