We are currently looking for a Branch Box Collector to join the Southwold & Dunwich Branch

The RNLI has a network of local fundraising teams organising a wide range of activities and events which last year raised £14 million to save lives at sea. Each team is supported by a Community Manager, although the range and frequency of fundraising events is determined by the team members themselves.

What you will be doing

  • Servicing, maintaining and emptying collection boxes on a regular basis and issuing related receipts
  • Recording the amounts raised from individual collecting boxes and passing monies to the treasurer for banking or paying monies into the bank using a paying-in book
  • Seeking out new locations for collection boxes
  • Being a positive ambassador and advocate for the RNLI and helping to drive our One Crew ethos
