We are looking to appoint a Bereavement Services Operative due to a career break taken by the current post holder, an opportunity has arisen to fill the element of the role that focusses on providing a high quality service for the bereaved through the provision of well-presented cemeteries and accurately prepared graves.

The job is outdoors, working across ten cemeteries and will involve the use of excavators, dumpers, vans and specialist grave shoring equipment as well as manual work as required by the various tasks.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic and accurate, can hit the ground running working effectively with the existing team and who has the skills required to undertake all the tasks required proficiently and with the minimum of supervision.

The nature of the work requires the postholder to be able to empathise with recently bereaved people as well as recognising and understanding their feelings and expectations. whilst balancing this with the requirements of the service.

This post is for 20 hrs per week plus occasional overtime.
