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

Becoming part of your local fundraising branch could offer you an opportunity to improve your CV, meet new people, learn new skills or just have fun with fundraising in your community.  Some of our branch members have been volunteering for many years, some just join us for a few months – whatever their commitments allow.

We are currently looking for motivated people to join our local fundraising branches and we have a specific vacancy detailed below:

Do you have experience in leading and developing teams and individuals?  Are you able to delegate?  Are you known for your tact and diplomacy? Do you have knowledge and networks in the local community that you are prepared to contact for the benefit of the RNLI? Then the role of Branch Chairperson could be for you. This role would suit someone who is highly motivated and can motivate those around them to achieve success.  

You may already have been a successful leader in your professional life or this may be an area of work you wish to develop your skills in before applying for a promotion at work.  In either case we would like to hear from you.

This is a great opportunity to really make a difference by raising vital funds for our volunteer crew members and lifeguards.  

This is a volunteer opportunity within the RNLI.  RNLI volunteers are people who, unpaid and of their own free will, contribute their time, energy and skills to support the purposes of the RNLI.  RNLI volunteers may perform a variety of tasks and duties, under direction and guidance, using their skills, knowledge and time to help the RNLI best achieve its objectives.

We respect and honour our volunteers by building trust and understanding.  Such a partnership is not intended to be a legally binding contract or to have mutuality of obligation, but instead express a voluntary two-way commitment where everyone gains satisfaction from being part of our organisation.

Our staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams, and consider it essential to help us deliver a world-class lifesaving service. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, we also look for applicants who share our commitment to living our RNLI values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping us work towards our goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using our expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
