Home-based, with extensive travel throughout the UK and ROI
£30,671 - £36,084
This is a critical role within the Coastal Maintenance (Boats & Equipment) team. Reporting to the Principal Maintenance Manager, the successful candidate will be required to plan, organise, administer and complete technical assessments across the in-service support coastal maintenance team based in the UK and ROI. Additionally, the role requires the Assessor to review and update existing assessment criteria, produce standard questions for each competence and add assessment criteria as new boats and equipment are introduced to the RNLI.
You will need to have extensive experience and considerable knowledge of maintenance and repair procedures associated with the RNLI fleet of lifeboats, launch & recovery and lifeguard equipment. Ideally you will have completed a full engineering apprenticeship, hold an engineering qualification to NVQ Level 4 (or equivalent) and have completed the current assessor qualification.
Working closely with eight Divisional Maintenance Managers across the RNLI to complete assessments, you will be required to provide individual face-to-face feedback on competence levels and identify development areas if required. In addition, you will need to work with the Learning & Development team to identify emerging training requirements and support/instruct training as required.
The importance of this role cannot be over emphasised. Assessing and confirming competence levels in the team will lead to improved technical standards, safer working and improved efficiency.
The position requires extensive travel, often spending weeks away from home and you should be prepared to work outside the normal 9-5 if required. As the role covers the UK and ROI, it is likely you will work from a Regional Base or Support Centre, although home based may be considered. You will require a full, valid driving licence with the addition of a towing licence.
To be considered, you will need:
- Experience of maintaining and repairing boats and associated equipment
- An NVQ Level 4 qualification or equivalent in an engineering discipline
- A time-served engineering apprenticeship
- An NVQ/SVQ Assessor qualification or equivalent is desirable
- A full, valid driving licence
The RNLI actively promotes continuous development within the organisation and is only receiving applications from internal candidates and volunteers at this time. If this position is not filled internally it will be re-advertised.
As this is a sea-going appointment, you will need to satisfy the institution's medical and eyesight standards.
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.
Please note the closing date for this role is the 18th November 2018.
