About us

Our purpose is simple, to save lives at sea. Since 1824, our crews have been risking their lives to save those who are in danger of drowning.

In 2024 the RNLI reaches its 200th birthday.

There are not many organisations that reach this milestone, let alone ones held so close to the heart of the nations they serve.

And our birthday brings a very special opportunity for our charity to become even more well-known and supported in the future by celebrating, commemorating, and inspiring our supporters and the public with the amazing lifesaving services we provide.

We have an exceptional opportunity to join our Engagement and Heritage team as Business Administration apprentice. You will support the RNLI by learning how to generate the vital supporter engagement, income and support through the delivery of an integrated marketing campaign in order to successfully fund the RNLI plan for the long term. This apprenticeship is a level 3.

This role would be suitable for someone ideally based in and around the Exeter area, and we would consider candidates as far afield as east Devon and west Dorset to support plans for delivery of our 2024 ambitions in the South West, supporting our Lifeboats, Lifeguards and wonderful engagement volunteers.
