Join Us

Here are some roles we are recruiting for:

  • Non- operational team members

If you are interested in joining the Marine Rescue Batemans Bay unit as Operational Crew, then we would love to meet you!  See below for details on the recruitment process and more detail on each of the stages.

So you want to take the first step?

The first step would be to attend an Information Evening.  We ask everyone thinking of joining to attend one of these sessions. These sessions will cover the following

  • Who we are
  • What we do
  • Our expectations of new members
  • The typical training journey to becoming Crew

This is a good opportunity for you to also understand if joining Marine Rescue will fit well with your lifestyle and family priorities.

What happens after that?

After the information evenings, if you are excited by what you hear and would like to continue your journey and become part of our team, then we ask you to submit a formal application which includes a mandatory ID check.  We then conduct 1:1 interviews to learn more about you, what you hope to get out of Marine Rescue and what skills and experiences you bring.  This is also a chance for you to ask questions on anything you may have missed at the information sessions. 

As we have more applicants than we have places, we then face the difficult decision on which candidates to invite to join us as our new trainees.  If you are unsuccessful in one intake there may be opportunities in a later intake, so we encourage you to reapply, or consider one of our non-operational roles.
