We're looking for someone whose passion for the RNLI will inspire and motivate a whole new generation of potential lifesavers and supporters. Could this be you?

Working with volunteers, schools, local authorities and other safety partners, you’ll deliver the RNLI’s Youth Education strategy by helping young people to stay safe in and around the water.

You'll encourage young people to get involved with the RNLI, create partnerships with key stakeholders, both internal and external to the RNLI and develop fresh approaches to managing and training volunteers. 

It's about having a real enthusiasm for inspiring young people - knowing how to connect with them in dynamic and exciting ways. You’ll understand the education market and the subtleties of communicating with young people using creative messages, media, products and channels.

Collaboration is an important part of this role, and so your negotiation and persuasion skills will secure the help of colleagues, partner agencies and other supporters. A confident and compelling communicator, you’ll be able to enthuse and motivate young audiences and volunteers alike. 

Experience of working with volunteers, partners and young people is essential; an understanding of educational structures would be an advantage.

Travel will be a significant part of the role, so this post requires a valid driving licence.
