Principal Maintenance Manager
In 2016, the RNLI launched lifeboats 8,851 times, rescuing 23 people every day and saving a total of 558 lives. To further our vital work, we trained and equipped more than 6,100 lifesavers, allowing us to provide a 24-hour rescue service across the UK and Ireland. Since 1824, we have directly saved more than 142,200 lives and prevented countless tragedies by educating people about safety at sea and on the coast.
Providing expert leadership, guidance and technical expertise, you will ensure that our boats and ancillary equipment are maintained effectively, safely and efficiently. You will oversee all aspects of planned maintenance, repairs and modifications, whilst tracking your team’s financial performance and constantly developing their skills. In particular, you will embed continuous improvement in everything we do, monitor compliance with legislation and best practice, and develop two, five and 10-year strategic plans, giving you an extremely high profile within the organisation.
Alongside a good Engineering-related degree and formal Health & Safety qualification, you should bring wide-ranging asset management and engineering experience, ideally within a maritime environment. Naturally, you will be skilled in managing teams, budgets and projects and will be keen to take on strategic responsibilities. Finally, you must be able to negotiate and coach effectively, and will bring everything it takes to get the most from a geographically diverse team.
As this is a sea-going appointment, you will need to satisfy the institution's medical and eyesight standards. This post also requires a valid driving licence.
