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 Conwy is looking for a volunteer to take on the role of Deputy Launching Authority.

Established in 1966, Conwy Lifeboat Station operates from the historic walled town of Conwy and beneath the historic Conwy Castle.  The Crews have been presented with three awards for gallantry.

The role of DLA is to authorise launch of the lifeboats provide leadership in the absence of the Lifeboat Operations Manager or as delegated 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 in Conwy and be between 17 and 70 years of age.
