Job Description:

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Coastguard Canterbury.

Without thousands of Coastguard volunteers around the country, New Zealand would have no maritime search and rescue service. Our volunteers give significant amounts of their time every year to provide the primary marine search and rescue service around New Zealand and have done since ships started arriving on our shores.

Our volunteers at the ones at the sharp end, crewing rescue vessels and aircraft, operating radios, coordinating search and rescue incidents, and saving lives at sea. The vast majority of Coastguard units are run entirely by volunteers, some of whom fill a number of roles and truly are the heart and soul of their local Coastguard service.

Volunteers serve in different capacities depending on their skills, interests and other commitments. Volunteer roles include search and rescue vessel crew, radio operators, pilots, search and rescue coordinators, training officers, and also support and governance positions - Presidents, board representatives, secretaries, treasurers and fundraisers.


Job Requirements:

All training is provided within the unit. 

We meet every Tuesday Night between 1900 - 2100.

Saturday & Sunday Duty Days are on a rostered basis, usually 1 day (alternating Sat/Sun) every other weekend.
