Regional Media Engagement Officer in Newcastle upon Tyne
on 30 January 2021
Regional Engagement Officer - Placement.
I was lucky enough to be accepted onto the summer graduate media engagement programme. I was flown to Poole for three days if training which was incredible. I absolutely LOVED this role and I’m gutted it was only a temporary role!
Technician in Poole

Management are the Biggest issue
My experience at the RNLI was that of the shop floor of the ALC. I was so excited to work for a cause and for a place that I knew I’d really be making a difference but it soon became apparent that it was a tough place to work if you actually wanted to ...... well work. Management positions are awarded to managements friends and not the ones that deserve it. The management do NOT listen to anyone that has first hand, on the tool management and only really care for KPI’ and the obvious hard work of a few goes ignored. I was there for a couple of years and I think I saw a manager come to the shop floor maybe 2 times and not once did they thank the hard work of the absolutely amazing talented trades man that they have working away to make sure that these amazing boats get put out on time. If you needed a technical drawing changed, good luck. The engineering office is so backed up and understaffed that it could take weeks or months to get any changes arranged. The ability of some trades are completely overlooked. A great example of this is engine rebuilds. When an engine is taken out of a boat, you would think that the incredibly well qualified mechanical technicians would get to work on these said engines but instead it is given to sub-contractors to do. This resonated strongly with a lot of staff who knew they had the ability to refurbish an engine and most of the staff completely willing to do this. The best thing that kept me going was the people I worked with. It was an amazing team effort to push these boats out to a super high quality. Your opportunities are very limited at the RNLI and unless you are a yes man, you will not progress anywhere other than in a straight line. My words of advice to any one joining the RNLI would be to keep in mind the cause and that it is a charity. Keep your head down and focus on the work you’re doing and just say yes and don’t question the management too much.
Supporter Care Team Administrator in Poole, Dorset

Great until you have any concerns
I had the chance to work at the RNLI twice. Sadly I left for the same reason the second time. There is a bullying culture within the RNLI. If you agree with your manager everything is fine. If you question whether Etsy HQ is really in the best interests of the volunteer crew and supporters you are quickly shunned. Millions could be saved by removing paperwork activities going back to the 70s
Mechanical Technician in East Cowes, Isle of Wight
on 6 August 2020
Nepotistic, lazy, slackers.
If you're the sort of low-life that wants to do absolutely bugger all at work but spend your day stood around chatting and still get paid extremely well by a charity. Latch on.. You are the sort of limpet the RNLI East Cowes factory is populated with.
Technician boatbuilder in Poole
on 18 July 2020
Avoid!
Worked as a boatbuilder, don’t care about you as long as the job is done. Cell leaders are brainwashed by the clouts upstairs, if a job has a mistake they will punish you big time for it wouldn’t recommend the place unless you are a robot
