Craster RNLI is looking to recruit extra volunteers
The charity has a variety of fulfilling roles available including volunteer crew members, deputy launching authorities, and fundraisers.
New recruits will receive comprehensive ongoing training which will equip them to embrace the rewarding challenge of saving lives at sea. They’ll also attend regular training exercises and learn vital skills to help them contribute towards the essential upkeep of the lifeboat.
Applicants don’t need any previous maritime experience but should have a good level of fitness and enjoy being part of a team.
RNLI crew members take real pride in fulfilling a valuable and vital role and the team at Craster is really looking forward to hearing from like-minded people.
Full training is given for all the roles and it’s a great way to meet new friends and enhance CVs while helping to support the local community.
