Job Vacancies – Part Time Casual Funeral Staff

Layout 1Following a successful launch in 2010 and increasing demand for our services, Kingfisher Independent Funeral Services has vacancies for part time casual funeral staff to join our close-knit team and become highly involved in many aspects of the business.

These are no ordinary positions with an ordinary funeral director. The funerals we are privileged to arrange are highly individual, and it is absolutely vital that you share our passion for excellent client care and attention to detail. We frequently receive feedback that ‘nothing is too much trouble’ and this is the attitude that you must have to each and every client.

As a small but rapidly growing business, we necessarily turn our hands to anything from washing cars to conducting high-profile funerals, and you must be willing to become fully involved in everything we do.

Casual funeral staff are generally involved in attending funerals, carrying coffins, performing burials, meeting bereaved people and assisting the funeral director to ensure the smooth running of the funeral. They are also called on when we require additional help, and this can be in the evenings and at weekends, due to the nature of the business.

As this is an ad hoc position, payment is made each time you are asked to help us. We currently pay a flat rate, and sometimes you will be 10 minutes, but other times you will be 3 hours. We operate in full compliance of HMRC’s PAYE system.

This is also an excellent opportunity to gain a huge amount of personal satisfaction. We are a growing business, and the future may hold further opportunities for the right person.

You will need to be of smart appearance and have the ability to talk to bereaved people. You will also need to have a full, clean driving licence.

If you feel that this opportunity could be for you, then please call in to one of our offices (Gate Lodge, Cemetery Road, St Neots PE19 2BX or 10-10A Princes Street, Huntingdon PE29 3PA) or apply in writing, including a copy of your current CV, and post to either of the above addresses, or e-mail your complete application to vacancy[at]

Thank you for your interest in Kingfisher Independent Funeral Services, the only locally-owned, fully independent funeral directors in St Neots and Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
