Volunteer Branch Treasurer - Thurso
Royal National Lifeboat Institution
Thurso
9d ago

The RNLI has a network of local fundraising branches organising a wide range of activities and events which last year raised £14 million to save lives at sea.

Each branch and guild is supported by a Community Fundraising Manager, although the range and frequency of fundraising events is determined by the branch members themselves.

The RNLI’s Lifeboat Station in Thurso is home to The Taylors, a Severn class Lifeboat, the largest in the RNLI fleet which is ideally suited to the challenging conditions found in the Pentland Firth.

  • We are looking to hear from anyone in the local community who would be interested in volunteering for the RNLI in a Fundraising role. The roles include;
  • Fundraising Branch Chair

    With a rich history, Thurso Lifeboat Station provides essential lifesaving work to prevent the loss of life at sea. The station has an excellent opportunity for members of the local community to become part of the team, apply your skills and knowledge in a charity setting and gain the satisfaction of playing your part in the community in which we serve.

    Do you have experience in leading and developing teams and individuals? Are you able to delegate? Are you known for your tact and diplomacy?

    Do you have knowledge and networks in the local community that you are prepared to contact for the benefit of the RNLI? Then the role of Branch Chairperson could be for you.

    This role would suit someone who is highly motivated and can motivate those around them to achieve success.

    Fundraising Branch Treasurer

    The role of branch treasurer is responsible for ensuring our fundraising branches comply with financial procedures and the recording of income / expenditure of fundraising events and activities.

    If you have an eye for detail, enjoy record keeping and have / or would like to gain financial accounting experience then this role is for you.

    Experience is not essential as full training will be provided.

    Fundraising Branch Member

    Becoming part of your local fundraising branch could offer you an opportunity to improve your CV, meet new people, learn new skills or just have fun with fundraising in your community.

    Some of our branch members have been volunteering for many years, some just join us for a few months whatever their commitments allow.

    This is a great opportunity to join a motivated, fun and enthusiastic local team whilst meeting new people within your community.

    You will have the satisfaction of helping to save lives at sea whilst all of the time you are building on skills and experience within a leading national charity.

    This is a volunteer opportunity within the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are people who, unpaid and of their own free will, contribute their time, energy and skills to support the purposes of the RNLI.

    RNLI volunteers may perform a variety of tasks and duties, under direction and guidance, using their skills, knowledge and time to help the RNLI best achieve its objectives.

    We respect and honour our volunteers by building trust and understanding. Such a partnership is not intended to be a legally binding contract or to have mutuality of obligation, but instead express a voluntary two-

    way commitment where everyone gains satisfaction from being part of our organisation.

    Our staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams, and consider it essential to help us deliver a world-

    class lifesaving service. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, we also look for applicants who share our commitment to living our RNLI values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping us work towards our goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024.

    This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using our expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
