Stonehaven RNLI seeks new volunteer press officer

By bellmannews / September 24, 2020

The team at Stonehaven RNLI is calling for a new volunteer lifeboat press officer to help save lives at sea.

The RNLI’s Lifeboat Station in Stonehaven is looking for a volunteer to join the existing team in the role of Lifeboat Press Officer.

The RNLI lifeboat station in Stonehaven opened in 2014, although the tradition of lifesaving goes back as far as 1854. The station operates an Atlantic 85 class lifeboat and launched on service 13 times in 2019.

Crewed by volunteers, funded by public donations and answering the call of help day or night whatever the weather. The RNLI has an incredible story to tell, could you be the person to help tell the how volunteers in your community are working to save lives at sea?

The role of the Lifeboat Press Officer is to build and maintain friendly relationships with local press, radio, television and online media, keeping the community informed of operational activity by promoting newsworthy rescues and lifeboat station events.

This is a good opportunity to join a motivated and enthusiastic local team and have the satisfaction of contributing to saving lives at sea.
