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 Newhaven is looking for volunteers to join the existing team in the role of All Weather Lifeboat Crew.

Established in 1803, Newhaven Lifeboat Station covers from Beachy Head to Brighton.  It’s a modern afloat station and operates an all-weather Severn class lifeboat.  The crews have been awarded 19 medals for gallantry.

The role of ALB Crew is to undertake and maintain Competency Based Training as necessary to fulfil the role of crew member, to be on call for lifeboat ‘shouts’, to attend exercises 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. No previous maritime experience needed. You must live or work within three miles of the station and be between 17 and 65 years of age.

Please apply online or for further information contact the RNLI’s Volunteering Team on 01202 663346 or by email on volunteering@rnli.org.uk
