Community Safety Advisors
Drowning prevention is a key part of our work.
Around the UK and Ireland, our Community Safety volunteers help to raise
awareness and influence people’s behavior.
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea, but it’s not limited to launching a lifeboat or providing
lifeguards to save lives.
Community safety fulfills one of the four strands of the RNLI’s concept of operations, saving live at sea by
providing free education and advice and facilitating other interventions through Community Lifesaving
The Community Safety Adviser is a public facing role as you will be going out into the community and
delivering the RNLI community safety advice directly to members of the community.
Whilst you are out in the community we would ask you to take the opportunity to seek out further
openings to promote the RNLI’s safety messages advising your Community Safety Officer of
opportunities which may arise.
This is a great role for somebody who has good communication and people skills and possibly some
experience of public speaking but if not, the desire to gain some skills and/or confidence in this area. The
ability to interact within a team will be important and, whilst it would be desirable to have some
knowledge of coastal activity, this is by no means a requirement to be considered for this role.
If you would like to join a friendly, dedicated and motivated team in Looe and fit the criteria above or,
have some of the required skills and would like to develop further in this area, we would like to hear from
you. Training will be provided to ensure a full knowledge of the RNLI and in particular the work of
Community Safety Team.
