Job description

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea and we do this in a number of ways one of which is the seasonal employment of our RNLI lifeguard service around the UK.

The Lincolnshire coast has four beaches in the area between Mablethorpe and Skegness and each year we employ a number of lifeguards to oversee beach users in order to supervise, educate and when necessary provide rescue. The role of a lifeguard is varied with the opportunity to learn vital skills that you can take on to future careers such as high level first aid skills and operational leadership.

Much of what we do is proactive and preventative so attention to detail and a good eye for spotting dangers is a good trait to have.

Company information

The RNLI has a long standing history of aiding those in a sea based environment and this is something we will endeavour to continue to do into the future and look at new and innovative ways to reduce further preventable loss of life at sea.
