RNLI recruiting for full lifeguard service for 2021 season

The RNLI says it is searching for new lifeguards to spend a season working on some of the UK’s most popular beaches, as applications open for 2021.

Beach lifeguards are at the forefront of the charity’s lifesaving work, offering safety advice to visitors and rescuing those in difficulty. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the RNLI says it will be providing a full lifeguard service to over 240 beaches this summer – unlike last year where the organisation found itself in an ‘impossible situation‘.

The RNLI says successful applicants will receive world-class lifesaving training, enjoy good rates of pay and develop valuable skills for a future career.

“The skills our lifeguards gain can be an ideal first step towards many career paths or offer invaluable experience for those studying or training in a similar field,” says Lee Fisher, lifeguard services manager. “We’ve had lifeguards who are studying for jobs in the emergency services or even volunteer for other rescue agencies.

“We’re looking for people with courage, determination and the ability to put their training into action and make the right decision if someone’s life is in danger. It is an incredibly rewarding role.”
