Description

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea, but it’s not limited to launching a lifeboat or providing lifeguards to save lives.

Water safety contributes to the RNLI’s vision of saving every one, by developing Community Lifesaving Plans (CLPs) and working with Partners to help influence improved safety, to reduce the number of preventable deaths and incidents that occur within local coastal and inland waterway environments.

The Water Safety Officer is a pivotal role in that you would be involved in the design and implementation of the Community Lifesaving Plan, liaising closely with the local Lifeboat Operations Team, Area Lifesaving Manager, and the Water Safety team. A Community Lifesaving Plan is designed to identify “at risk” groups to reduce fatalities and serious incidents by working with partners to develop specifically targeted interventions.

This is a great volunteer opportunity for someone who can be effective both within a team and on a stand-alone basis. If you would like to join a friendly, dedicated, motivated team and you fit the criteria above or, have some of the required skills, we would like to hear from you.
