All RNLI lifeboat stations rely on a team of volunteers to make sure that the lifeboats are ready and able to launch at a moment's notice. Both St Helier and St Catherine's lifeboat stations have shoreside helpers who do not form part of the active lifeboat crew, but whose role is nonetheless vital to each of the lifeboat stations.
Roles which typically form part of the shoreside team include:
- Lifeboat Operations Manager
- Deputy Launch Authority
- Tractor driver/launcher
- Lifeboat Press Officer
More information about each can be found on the main RNLI website.
The RNLI Jersey stations are looking for the following shoreside helpers - if you are interested, please contact the relevant station in the Contact section:
St Helier - no specific roles sought but volunteers always welcome.
St Catherine - we would be interested in additional mechanic and/or launcher shoreside helpers to help provide cover for the current team.
