It may be deepest January, but the RNLI is in search of new recruits to spend the summer working as fundraisers on some of Northern Ireland’s most popular beaches, as applications open for 2019.
An essential role in inspiring support for the RNLI’s lifesaving work, each year fundraisers spend the summer on the beach and at some of the top summer events, encouraging visitors to become supporters of the charity while also providing essential local safety advice to thousands of holidaymakers.
Neal Somerville, Face-to-Face Fundraising Manager, said: “Our fundraisers are vital to the charity over the summer, working with lifeguards to provide beach visitors to the Causeway Coast and County Down, 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.
“Being part of a lifesaving team working on the beach and at some of the most popular events for a charity really has to be one of the 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.
