The core hours are 9am to 5pm Monday and Tuesday and 9am to 1pm on Wednesday. There will also be the requirement to cover holiday/training and sickness absence of colleagues therefore the need for flexibility is essential.

You will be working with and providing support to the Funeral Director to provide an excellent service for customers and assist with the process of arranging and planning funeral services. The post holder will be required to work flexibly in a tight knit team environment.

The key duties of the post are as follows :

  • You will be required to attend full day training sessions to develop skills and knowledge. The successful candidate will need to be prepared to travel on these occasions. There is also a longer Funeral Arranger/Administrator training course. The successful candidate must therefore be able to attend this course, be able to travel and depending on the location of the course, possibly stay away.
  • The successful candidate must also be able to provide holiday and sickness cover for job-share colleagues plus cover when attending training, so the need for flexibility is paramount.
