Countertop Box Collector

  • VO71660


We are establishing a new fundraising group in Dundee focussing on setting up locations for counter top collecting boxes. If you like getting out and about, meeting people, developing relationships and have basic numeracy skills, this could be the role for you!

Becoming part of this group offers you the opportunity to meet people, learn new skills, improve your CV or just have fun with your group and in your community. Some group members have been volunteering for many years, some just join for a shorter time offering a few hours a month, the time commitment is flexible.

The RNLI has a network of local fundraising groups organising a wide range of activities and events which last year raised £14 million to help save lives at sea. This is a great opportunity to make a difference by raising vital funds for our volunteer crew, lifeguards and drowning prevention work.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our volunteer lifeboat crews provide a 24-hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland, and our seasonal lifeguards look after people on busy beaches. Our Flood Rescue Team helps those affected by flooding. RNLI crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,200 lives since 1824 but we’re more than a rescue service. We influence, supervise and educate people too. Our Community Safety teams explain the risks and share safety knowledge with anyone going out to sea or to the coast. And our international teams work with like-minded organisations to help tackle drowning in communities at risk all around the world.










The time commitment on a regular basis is flexible and open to discussion, as is the length of involvement - Approximately 6-8 hours a month as a rough starting point for discussion if that helps.


Experience required: Good people and team working skills are required, along with basic numeracy skills. An interest in the work of the RNLI, and community safety more broadly are desirable but not essential.
Travel details: The travel involved is up to the person in the role, reasonable travel expenses will be covered.


Expenses paid: Yes
Expenses details: Reasonable travel expenses incurred in the fulfilment of this role will be reimbursed, further details on this can discussed in more depth if the role is of interest.
