About the role
As an RNLI lifeguard, you have a unique opportunity to make a difference to the safety of thousands of beachgoers. In 2018, our lifeguards helped over 32,000 people.
Lifeguarding opens plenty of doors for professional development – no matter what career you aspire to.
To help you make the most out of your experience and training, you’ll get to work on a wide range of beaches and finish the summer with new qualifications and transferable skills.
You’ll earn a salary as an RNLI lifeguard which, depending on your role, can range from £9 – £11.29* per hour.
Our lifeguards typically work around 40 hours a week and we’re open to working flexibly around your commitments – such as family care or shift work with another employer.
Throughout your time as a lifeguard, you’ll undergo an extensive training programme to build your skills – from how to handle equipment on the beach, to first aid and casualty care – and you’ll receive continuous, on-the-job training.
