Northumberland Coastguard teams are recruiting now for new officers.

Thursday, 13th December 2018, 08:11 am

The teams at Berwick, Holy Island, Seahouses, Howick, Amble, Newbiggin and Blyth are all seeking reinforcements.

If you live within 20 minutes of your nearest station, have a full driving licence, can commit to regular training and being on call and want to help people within your community while learning new skills then drop the Coastguard a message for further information.

New recruits will be joining a close-knit team of highly-trained volunteers providing 24/7 emergency cover along the Northumberland coast.

If interested, search HM Coastguard Northumberland on Facebook to get in touch.
