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.

One of five lifeboat stations on the Isle of Man, and home to the founder of the RNLI, Sir William Hillary, today‚Äôs Tyne class lifeboat at Douglas is named after him.  The crews have been presented with 21 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 close to the lifeboat station and be between 17 and 70 years of age.
