Royal National Lifeboat Institution recruiting for lifeguards in Lincolnshire
THE Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has started its national lifeguard recruitment campaign and is looking for people who are interested in becoming lifeguards in East Lindsey.
The charity, in partnership with East Lindsey District Council, will again be providing the lifeguard cover on the beaches at Mablethorpe, Sutton-on-Sea and Skegness during the summer.
A key part of a lifeguard's job is to spot dangers before they develop and 95 per cent of the role is preventative.
The lifeguards offer friendly and helpful advice, ensuring that people have a safe and enjoyable visit to the seaside while earning a competitive rate of pay.

Lifeguard manager Vince Pank said: "This is a great opportunity for people to secure exciting and rewarding employment for the summer. We have a good number of lifeguards returning, but we are also seeking more recruits to join our world-class lifesaving service.
"Being a beach lifeguard is a summer job with a difference. It's physically demanding and requires commitment, but the level of training and support the RNLI provides will leave you with invaluable skills for life. Plus you'll be spending your summer outside and making a difference on the beach.
"As entrance to the course is dependent on a swimming test, we're keen to hear from people as soon as possible so we can support them in reaching the required fitness levels before applying."
Applicants must be 16 or over and hold a valid surf lifesaving qualification.
To enable those not yet qualified to apply, North Norfolk Surf Life Saving Club will be running an SLSGB Surf Lifeguard course in Skegness during the Easter holidays. Courses will run from April 8 to 13 and cost £230 for the complete course and assessment.
Portfolio holder for culture, leisure and tourism, Councillor Adam Grist, said: "Our coast welcomes millions of visitors each year and the RNLI do an amazing job watching over our beaches to help ensure people are safe.
"This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a very rewarding job, ensuring the safety of hundreds of people and saving lives in Lincolnshire. I hope the RNLI receive lots of interest for the rewarding position on offer."
The RNLI lifeguard service starts on May 25 and runs until September 8, seven days a week from 10am to 6pm.
