37 hours per week - The post holder will be expected to work Monday to Friday and a Saturday on a rota basis, with a day off in lieu.
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 vacancies for two highly motivated, conscientious and enthusiastic Crematorium Chapel Attendants.
The role will be very diverse and rewarding and involves working in an extremely busy frontline service. As part of the Stockton-on-Tees Crematorium Team you will be required to attend the Chapel during funeral services and will play a key role in assisting those present.
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, 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 across the whole of the Registration and Bereavement Service will be given. Prior to the opening of the facility the successful candidates will be expected to work within neighbouring authorities to gain experience.
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.
Interview Date: 03/10/2018 or 04/10/2018
For a further informal discussion, please contact Vicky Hatton, Cemeteries & Crematorium Unit Manager, on 01642 527619.
