The RNLI has begun its search for new lifeguards to patrol its 10 beaches this summer.
Last week, the RNLI launched its ‘Best Summer Job’ campaign by opening beach lifeguard recruitment online.
New recruits will be kitted, paid and trained to patrol ten beaches located on the North Coast and in County Down for the charity that saves lives a sea.
RNLI Lifeguard Supervisor Karl O’Neill said: ‘I can’t think of a better way to cure the winter blues than applying to become an RNLI beach lifeguard and get paid to save lives this summer.
“We’re looking for strong swimmers who can swim 400m with a good level of fitness aged over 16 years old. If you have the raw ability and the will to learn we can help get you fit and qualified.”
Lifeguards come from all walks of life including college and university students, teachers, stay-at-home parents, business owners and gap year travellers, all looking to do something special with their summer.
