Nene Valley Crematorium – vacancy

The Manager and Registrar is now recruiting a permanent team to focus on tailoring funerals to suit bereaved people’s needs and is therefore looking to find caring and dedicated individuals, who are flexible and committed to high standards of customer service, when responding to requests to create a funeral that reflects an accurate memory picture of the person who lived.

Business and Service Support – part time (16 hours per week), salary circa £16,000 (pro rota)

Your primary responsibility is to provide support across the whole service. Initially your focus will be to provide administrative support during core times, and as the business grows, to provide cover as identified by service needs. We are therefore looking for a person who has the ability to turn their hand to most things, with an eye for attention to detail, and who will be very flexible in their approach. You could be: working in the chapel; crematory; office; grounds (horticultural or scattering of ashes); meeting and greeting bereaved people, providing guidance and support. The hours of this post are flexible. You will need good IT skills and demonstrate that you are well-organised, motivated and able to provide the support needed by bereaved people.

Determined by service requirements, when reacting to personalised requests both post holders will be expected to work shifts to accommodate a seven-day working rota; hours will vary, but will be determined by service delivery requirements. Therefore weekend working and occasional evening cover will be required. There is a requirement that these post holders are on call for the alarm system via a four-week rota


Adapting to meet customer’s individual needs is crucial, so the ability to multitask in a busy environment is essential, as is carrying out and maintaining a high standard of cleaning and general housekeeping, both inside and out – there will also be a responsibility for carrying our minor repairs and maintenance.
