New RNLI Fundraising Ambassador Opportunities Available On Isle Of Wight

Applications are now open to become one of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s (RNLI) face-to-face fundraisers in the south east region.

This vital role helps the lifesaving charity reach thousands of people every year, sharing safety messages and encouraging new supporters to sign up and donate.

A role within the RNLI’s face-to-face fundraising team offers flexible working in some great locations, including the Isle of Wight and beaches along the south east’s sunshine coastline.

You will be able to take part in upcoming fundraising events, such as London lifeboat day, Poole lifeboat festival and RNLI’s Tower Run 2024. Fundraisers receive full, high-quality training and competitive rates of pay, while also developing valuable professional and personal skills.

One person who knows very well the impact that funds raised can have is John Connolly, who joined the RNLI as a fundraiser in 2018, and now works as a Deputy Face-to-Face Fundraising Manager:

He said:

"I grew up in a maritime town, so I was always aware of the RNLI and what they did, but its importance was really brought home to me on a holiday with my family back in 2009.

"My children were all enjoying bodyboarding on a lifeguarded beach, when my son started to drift outside the area marked by the red and yellow flags.

"He was quickly rescued by the RNLI lifeguard on duty."

A few years later, when looking for summer work, John saw an advertisement for RNLI face-to-face fundraisers.

Attracted by the possibility of working outside, raising funds for the RNLI’s lifesaving work, and engaging with members of the public, he decided to apply.

RNLI face-to-face fundraising vacancies are now available across the UK and Ireland, including in the south east of England, with a range of hours from part- to full-time.
