The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea.
We do more than just save lives, we make using the water safer and more accessible and we’ve been doing it for nearly 200 years.
From dozens of lifeboat stations through the UK and Ireland, on beaches and in the waters surrounding the British Isles, we launch our specific boats, crews and lifeguards thousands of times every year to help those who find themselves in danger when using the water.

We work at the forefront of lifesaving and so every system you work with, every lifeboat we launch and every time a crew member dives into the sea to save a life, we are utilising cutting-edge technology. Our lifeboats are all assembled at our headquarters in Poole, Dorset and we put as much care into their creation as we do into their upkeep and maintenance.
And that’s where you come in. We need you to drive standards, make our budgets go further and make sure every single piece of kit we use works perfectly, every time.
Our teams across the country are dedicated to lifesaving and every single member of the RNLI knows the impact their role can have on our lifesaving activities. So, if you want to be part of our winning team, apply today and start making a difference from day one.
The closing date for this role is the 29th April 2018.
Our staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams, and consider it essential to help us deliver a world-class lifesaving service. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, we also look for applicants who share our commitment to living our RNLI values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping us work towards our goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using our expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
