Call Centre and Face to Face Promotions Team
While our rescue crews and lifeguards are out saving lives, we have a team raising funds to support their efforts. If you have excellent communication skills, good references and are goal oriented you may be a good candidate. You must be a team player, motivated, energetic and have good interpersonal skills. The call centre is based in Milnerton, Cape Town, on the MY CITI bus route. There are also teams that promote Sea Rescue, face to face, in shopping centres in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Click here to see the short video on what Sea Rescue marketers do and how to apply. If you have no previous fundraising experience – they will train you.
To apply, please call Rachel/Lianne at on +27 21 430 4732.
Please first call. Leave a message of introduction and she will call you back.
Our rescue crew are all unpaid volunteers who are on standby for duty. It takes a special kind of person to give up your time and to risk your life. It is most useful to have new recruits who are familiar with the sea, radio operation, navigation or first aid but, whatever your talent, we can put you to good use.
Our first priority with volunteers is commitment and participation – distance from the rescue base (ideally 10 minutes) and time available for rescues and training are most important. Training is done after hours in the evening or on weekends. Standby for rescues is a 24/7 commitment, and best suited to people who live 10 minutes from a rescue base.
Volunteering is not glamorous work. There is a lot of training and a lot of cleaning-up involved. It can take anywhere from 6 months to 12 months before you will be ready for a real-life rescue. Team effort is essential. If you prefer to stay on dry land you could help a rescue base with admin work, maintenance tasks or as the radio controller.
If you would like to sign up, contact your nearest rescue base and ask if you can be included in their next open day meeting for new recruits. https://www.nsri.org.za/rescue/rescue-bases/
