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 Newcastle, Co. Down is looking for volunteers to join the existing team in the role of Shore Crew.

Newcastle Lifeboat Station was established in 1825.  Newcastle Lifeboat Station operates an All-weather Mersey Class Lifeboat and an Inshore D Class Lifeboat.  The Crews have been awarded thirty medals for gallantry.

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 three miles of the station and be between 17 and 65 years of age.
