RNLI opens applications for ‘Britain’s best summer job’
It may be deepest January, but the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is in search of new recruits to spend the summer working as fundraisers on some of Britain’s most popular beaches, as applications open today (Friday 4 January) for 2019.
"We’re looking for outgoing and passionate people to join the team and support our cause."
An essential role in inspiring support for the RNLI’s lifesaving work, each year around 150 fundraisers spend the summer on the beach and at some of the UK’s top summer events, encouraging visitors to become supporters of the charity while also providing essential local safety advice to thousands of holidaymakers.
Annabelle Hobson, Senior Face-to-Face Fundraising Manager, said: 'Our fundraisers are vital to the charity over the summer, working with lifeguards to provide beach visitors with important safety advice as well as encouraging them to support our lifesaving work. We’re looking for outgoing and passionate people to join the team and support our cause.
‘A summer job fundraising with the RNLI will help develop valuable skills for a host of future careers, and those who have joined us in the past say the experience is life-changing. So along with good rates of pay, being part of a lifesaving team working on the beach and at some of the country’s most popular events for a national charity really has to be one of Britain’s best summer jobs!'
Full training is provided to all successful candidates, to ensure they feel confident and capable in the role. Applications are now open and will remain so until Sunday 20 January 2019.
