The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) is a provider of water safety and rescue services, at a wide range of open water events. RLSS UK Event Safety is committed to providing high quality, effective water safety and rescue services, that makes best-use of our army of fully-qualified volunteers.
Our best-practice means keeping costs to a minimum. In turn, this means we can invest in equipment and training to support our Volunteer Lifeguard Units , throughout the year.
There is a huge range of exciting volunteering opportunities throughout the year including triathlon’s, open water swims, regattas and festivals.
To ensure effective and efficient operations we need a mix of volunteers to:
- Provide safety cover: lifeguards, kayakers, powerboat helms, first aiders
- Provide welfare support: cater for the crew, look after kit and general team welfare support
At times you will be based on the land, at other times on the water but you will never be asked to perform a task you are not trained to do. Wherever possible, we will co-ordinate training to support your ongoing development.
Each event is different but if you are signed up to join the team, you will be given detailed instructions explaining the role and support you can expect (travel and subsistence etc).
