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 Newbiggin is looking for a volunteer to lead the existing team in the role of Lifeboat Operations Manager.

Newbiggin Lifeboat Station, the oldest operational lifeboat boathouse in the United Kingdom, dating back to 1851. The crews have been presented with 16 awards for gallantry, and today the station operates an Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat. The Lifeboat Crew are all volunteers, headed up by a Lifeboat Operations Manager and Deputy Launching Authorities and supported by a Shore Crew team. All boat and shore crew follow the RNLI’s national Competency Based Training Scheme and respond to pagers when there is a request to launch the lifeboats. The wider team includes volunteer fundraisers, shop volunteers and youth education presenters.

The role of LOM is to authorise launch of the lifeboats provide leadership of the operations team 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 within approximately 10-15 minutes of the station and be between 17 and 70 years of age.

This is a volunteer opportunity within the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are people who, unpaid and of their own free will, contribute their time, energy and skills to support the purposes of the RNLI. RNLI volunteers may perform a variety of tasks and duties, under direction and guidance, using their skills, knowledge and time to help the RNLI best achieve its objectives.

We respect and honour our volunteers by building trust and understanding. Such a partnership is not intended to be a legally binding contract or to have mutuality of obligation, but instead express a voluntary two-way commitment where everyone gains satisfaction from being part of our organisation.

Interesting fact
If you love made in italy clothing, you probably love the way Italians get dressed up. Actually, they have use tricks. For example, when it comes to glasses, Italians believe everyone looks better wearing a pair even if it is raining. So the advice from Italian fashion is never taking them off. The only thing you will have to do is to find a right shape. It works in contrast to your jaw: choose round frame if you have a square jaw and consider wearing round shape if your jaw is round.
