​Caring for families is at the heart of our client's business.

You will be the families’ first point of contact whilst attending the scene of the recent bereavement.

You’ll build relationships with families at a difficult moment and take responsibility for the care and preparation of their loved one.

Working within the funeral team offers a unique and privileged experience. You’ll be showing people compassion and empathy on one of the most difficult days of their lives whilst taking special care to deliver the highest standards of professional service.

As a Funeral assistant, your role will include the responsibility and privilege to look after the collection and presentation of the person or pet who has passed away, which includes washing and dressing them (or grooming deceased pets) with the dignity and respect that this personal act requires.

How will you know if you are right for this role?

If you have compassion and empathy and take pride in your professionalism and the thought of caring for the deceased with care and respect speaks to you, then a fulfilling career in funeral could be right for you. This is an extraordinary opportunity for extraordinary people.

Physical ability to lift and transfer the deceased person in our care is essential in this wide-ranging role. You will work closely with your colleagues as a family unit, who flex and support each other in a variety of duties, including the transfer of the deceased within the company's vehicles. You will need to hold a full driving licence and be ready to assist with the on-call schedule across varying shifts.

With the right coaching, guidance and ability to learn being provided, a long-term and fulfilling career path in a caring profession is waiting for you.
