Requirements and training

The RNLI is well known for the quality of its training – nothing but the best is good enough when it comes to saving lives. Face-to-face conversations are crucial for education, as well as fundraising, so this role is no exception to our standards.

What we ask of you

To be a face-to-face fundraiser, you need to be 18 years old or over. All we ask for are vibrant personalities and that you can commit to working full-time from mid-June to early September (there will also be a few days of pre-season activity in May) – we’ll provide the rest to help you excel.

You’ll work for a minimum of 4 days a week which will include weekends in July and August. And while it’s not essential, if you’re a driver with a valid UK or Irish licence that will be really beneficial. 

How we’ll support you

Before the season starts, you’ll receive an introduction to fundraising for the RNLI, as well as learning how to start inspiring conversations. You’ll also learn local knowledge for your chosen beach and how to ask for donations. 

We work to bring everyone up to speed and make sure you feel confident and capable by the time the summer begins.

As well as continuously learning on the job, we’ll offer you one-to-one coaching to help you build confidence.
