Stockton-On-Tees Borough Council is an organisation where all staff are trusted, supported and valued to make a positive contribution at work. Where we never lose sight of the fact that we are here to serve the people of the borough.

An excellent and exciting opportunity has arisen within the new Stockton-on-Tees Crematorium. We are looking to recruit the right person into our team and currently have a vacancy for a highly motivated, conscientious and enthusiastic Crematorium Receptionist.

The role will be very diverse and rewarding and involves working in an extremely busy frontline service to provide effective, efficient and professional front-line meet, greet and customer reception duties, which will assist in the delivery of a high-quality, compassionate and customer focussed, Burial & Cremation Service.

You will also liaise and engage with funeral directors and multi faith celebrants and assist mourners and members of the Public in a sensitive, caring and understanding manner.

An ability to maintain your composure at all times, adopting tact, diplomacy and empathy, combined with a flexible and sympathetic attitude and a smart appearance are essential requirements of the post, as is having effective communication skills.

Whilst knowledge and experience of working in a similar environment will always be of use, this is by no means the most important aspect that we are looking for as full training will be given.

If you have read the information above, you will know that we are looking for the right person who can communicate well, engage with our staff and customers and, most importantly, have a range of skills and personal qualities which they can transfer into this new and exciting opportunity.
