Save a life this summer as an RNLI lifeguard
The RNLI, the charity that saves lives at sea, is currently recruiting for lifeguards for this summer.
The RNLI operates more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and the Channel Islands, including Littlehampton East Beach. RNLI Lifeguards have a unique opportunity to make a difference to thousands of beachgoers – in 2018 they helped over 32,000 people.
Craig Maltby, RNLI lead lifeguard supervisor for West Sussex, Hampshire & Isle of Wight, said: ‘To apply, you need to be of school leaving age, have a right to work in the UK, be healthy, able to swim 400m and meet our specific fitness criteria. If you’ve got a beach lifeguard qualification, you’re halfway there already – if not, we might be able to help you with that.’
