Exmouth RNLI seek volunteer shop manager

Exmouth RNLI are looking for an enthusiastic and organised member of the community with excellent communication skills for the role of volunteer shop manager at their shop at the Lifeboat Station in Queens Drive.

Could you, or someone you know, donate your time to the RNLI to manage the shop, co-ordinate and work with the deputy shop manager and superb volunteers at our shop in Exmouth? Are you looking for a rewarding opportunity to give your spare time to an amazing cause ?

Exmouth RNLI Shop

The RNLI shops started life as simple cake stalls, run by volunteers and their supporters to raise money for the local Lifeboats and stations.  These stalls started selling commemorative RNLI products in around 1920 and quickly moved on to selling souvenirs and Christmas cards.  The first shop to be run as part of an actual station opened in 1990. Exmouth Shop currently has around 44 enthusiastic volunteers, opens 7 days per week all year round and is one of the top shops in the country.

For many people, buying something from an RNLI shop will be the first time that they come into contact with our Charity, and as a volunteer shop manager/co-ordinator you could be the person that engages them and the other shop volunteers to support us now, and in the future.  Your welcoming, organised and efficient nature will ensure that our shops are a friendly and attractive place to shop, fully representing the RNLI values.

A background in retail is not essential but the successful candidate will have the ability to get on with people from many walks of life, to manage and motivate other like minded volunteers and be part of a great team supporting the charity that saves lives at sea.
