Deputy Launching Authority - Walton and Frinton
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 Walton and Frinton is looking for a volunteer to lead the existing team in the role of Lifeboat Operations Manager.
There has been a lifeboat station at Walton and Frinton for over 130 years. The lifesaving achievements of crew members have been recognised by the RNLI 75 times. Today’s crew operate a Tamar class all- weather lifeboat.
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 within 3 miles of the station and be between 17 and 70 years of age.
