  • Develop high performing, skilled and engaged colleagues, ensuring we have the right ‘skills mix’ within the memorials team
  • Effectively communicate with colleagues, ensuring they are aware of the wider business goals and the impact of their individual contribution
  • Prepare and present to the General Manager opportunities for growth / improvements and action these accordingly
  • Ensure health & safety compliance throughout our processes and teams

  • A practical and well-organised approach
  • Determined and resilient, with the ability to innovate and deliver different ideas through effective change management
  • Good level of literacy, numeracy and IT skills
  • Current valid driving license

  • Experience of manufacturing
  • IOSH Safety qualification
  • Knowledge of the funeral / memorials process and associated administration

  • Package Description
