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 Fethard is looking for volunteers to join the existing team in the role of Inshore Lifeboat Crew.

Fethard Lifeboat Station operates a D-class lifeboat, which is launched from multiple sites on the Hook peninsula. The station reopened in 1996 after being closed for 80 years.

The role of ILB 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 close to the station and be between 17 and 55 years of age.

Please apply online or for further information contact the RNLI’s Volunteering Team on 01202 663346 or 01 895 1831 (Republic of Ireland) or by email on volunteering@rnli.org.uk.
