Current vacancies

Work for Coastguard and support our awesome volunteers, saving lives at sea.

We are a voluntary organisation, but our national and regional offices have small teams of operational, managerial, administrative and fundraising staff with one aim - supporting the volunteers who are out there at the sharp end, saving lives at sea.

When roles are available, this page will display current vacancies in our national or regional offices.
