RNLI’s volunteer search

A volunteer fund raising advisor is being sought by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution for south east Scotland.

The charity is looking for someone with experience in marketing and public relations or IT and web literary and social media skills, to promote the many activities being undertaken by local RNLI fund raising branches and guilds.

The RNLI depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service and Heather Malkin, RNLI volunteering recruitment advisor said: “We are looking for a motivated individual who would like to get involved in a brand new opportunity - a volunteer fund raising communications advisor. Volunteers who undertake this activity will become the lynchpin between the RNLI and the fund raising branches in south east Scotland ensuring good communication whilst offering guidance to the network of volunteer communication officers who will support the immediate branches in the area.

“If you have the ability to communicate well and can deliver training with confidence we would love to hear from you.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to really make a difference and help raise funds for this lifesaving charity whilst also allowing you to learn new skills and enhancing your CV.”

The successful candidate will attend a training event at the RNLI Lifeboat College in Poole, Dorset, prior to working with branches in Berwickshire and along the east coast of Scotland.
