Good.
RNLI beach lifeguard is the best job in Britain. Working on the best beach in Europe really helps to show that. My colleagues are all similar thinking, young adults and work is an enjoyable place to be.

Fun work, dedicated to saving lives, lifelong experience.
I worked as a Beach Lifeguard. What better place to work? Ensuring public safety by being equipped with advanced first aid skills, prolific rescue skills, and a high standard of fitness.
Very well organised company, good management. Always someone to talk to if needed and great support from co workers. The RNLI is like a family, everyone supports everyone.

Hardest part of the job is rainy days, when no one comes to the beach. however these days are perfect for improving personal work skills and team cohesion.

The most enjoyable part of the day is leaving the beach after clocking off on a scorching, busy day, safe in the knowledge that everything you did today saved lives. Another enjoyable part of the job is knowing that no single day is the same, anything can happen on any day!
Pros
Saving lives, outside job, high fitness standards, socials
Cons
Long days
