Long Term

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 Enniskillen is looking for a volunteer to lead the existing team in the role of Lifeboat Operations Manager.

Enniskillen is the first RNLI Inland Station to operate in Northern Ireland and the second Inland Lifeboat Station to open.  With inland waterways being increasingly used for pleasure, the RNLI has evolved its service to include selected inland waterways.

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 on Lough Erne.

If you are a team player with leadership skills and local knowledge this could be the role for you. You must be between 17 and 70 years of age.
