Casual Chapel Attendant
The Council’s Bereavement Services are looking for enthusiastic and capable people to join its team based at the Chelmsford Cemetery and Crematorium.
As part of the Chelmsford Crematorium Chapel team you will be required to attend one of the chapels during funeral services and will play a key role in assisting those present. Working closely with funeral directors and the clergy, you will be expected to develop a collaborative approach to the smooth operation of this key service that equals the care and diligence required by the occasion.
An ability to maintain your composure at all times combined with a flexible, adaptable and sympathetic attitude whilst maintaining a smart appearance are essential requirements of the post, as are effective communication skills.
The hours and days of work would be offered on a casual basis and would need to cover service requirements. Generally working times falls within Monday to Friday 11am – 3pm (however may occasionally cover additional periods between 9am-5pm).
Chelmsford City Council is committed to safeguarding vulnerable groups and expects all employees to share this commitment. This includes obtaining references and ensuring compliance with the Disclosure and Barring Service process.
