Our goals and vision
The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames is regarded as one greenest London Borough’s and has one of the largest parks and open spaces estates in the country.

The successful candidate will be joining a dynamic, ambitious, and experienced Parks Team that actively engages with stakeholders and residents, to ensure that our parks, open spaces, and cemetery grounds continue to meet the needs of the local community.
The Parks Team is very supportive and works closely with service-related contractors, community groups and volunteer groups, to identify necessary improvements and ensure that our parks, open spaces, and cemeteries are safe and welcoming for all.

About the role
The Cemetery Operations Team undertake all operational aspects of the cemetery grounds in accordance with ICCM guidelines and the Council’s service policies, standards and procedures, legal requirements, and professional codes of practice.
You will be responsible for the supervision of the Mobile Cemetery Operatives, working closely with the Parks Operations Manager to develop and implement work schedules which ensure a high level of performance from the Cemetery Operations Team.
You will oversee and ensure that all graves are prepared correctly, in compliance with Health and Safety Legislation, Burial Law (the Local Authorities Cemeteries Order 1977), and the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM) Code of Safe Working Practice in Cemeteries.
