Volunteer Hovercraft Crew - Hunstanton
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 Hunstanton is looking for volunteers to join the existing team in the role of Hovercraft Lifeboat Crew.
Hunstanton Lifeboat Station has seen several different types of rescue craft during its history. It saw the RNLI’s first motor tractor and today it operates an inshore B class Atlantic 75 lifeboat and one of only four inshore rescue hovercraft.
The role of Hovercraft 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 55 years of age. Time commitment will vary depending on the operational need of the lifeboat station. Willingness to volunteer at weekends and anti-social hours.
