Bereavement Services Apprentice

The Council is seeking a sensitive, tactful and caring person to join its Bereavement Services team as its first apprentice. Having the right personality and attitude for the job and learning is very important. This is a new position and an excellent opportunity for the right person.


Day to day duties will include:


  • Helping to provide a customer focussed front line service for the bereaved and other cemetery users
  • Assisting the Bereavement Services Manager and Officer with a variety of general and day to day administration duties
  • The digitisation of historical burial records on to the BACAS system
  • Providing support to the gravedigger / gardener team


The post is mainly office bound and will be based at the Council’s Watling Street Cemetery office, but occasional visits to other cemeteries in the borough will be needed.


Full training will be provided and the successful candidate will be expected to undertake and complete a business administration qualification.
