We’re growing Co-op Funeralcare and so far we’ve achieved a great deal. We’ve made our low cost funeral services accessible to more people than ever before, launched our new membership and are updating our processes and systems to become more digital. We pride ourselves on providing a caring and compassionate service. Joining us as a driver/bearer you’ll be part of a dedicated team focussed on the care of the client, where you’ll play a pivotal part in the delivery of the funeral.

As a driver/bearer at Co-op Funeralcare you’ll be a big part of carrying out the funeral on the day. You’ll drive our ceremonial vehicles taking care of every detail, make sure vehicles are maintained to the highest standards for each funeral and bear the coffin as part of a team. All whilst providing the highest levels of empathy and compassion for the family on the day, personal to their needs.

What you’ll do:

  • Drive our ceremonial vehicles on the day of the funeral following planned routes and time scales

  • Provide a professional yet empathetic chauffer service to those travelling in your vehicle, taking into consideration their requirements throughout the journey

  • Maintain the vehicles including washing after and before each funeral so they are kept to the highest standards

  • Act as a bearer on funeral ceremonies and respectfully deal with requested items i.e. floral tributes

  • Check everything is as perfect as it can be before each ceremony for the deceased and their families

You don’t need specific experience as a driver or bearer before, instead you’ll need to showcase some vital strengths required to be successful with us. You’ll be empathetic and able to deliver excellent client care at all times. You’ll be able to follow detailed instructions meticulously in order to deliver the funeral to plan. And of course we’ll need you to have a UK manual driving license and the ability to lift/ bear a coffin.

We’d love to talk to you if:

  • You’re able to deliver personalised and empathetic client service, when clients are at their most vulnerable

  • You can take instructions, absorb them and follow them to the letter

  • You’re able to adapt to changing situations calmly

  • You take big pride in your appearance

  • You understand that each and every funeral is unique

  • You’ve a clean UK manual driving license (if you’re in NI- for a minimum of 2 years)

  • You’re comfortable lifting and have no health reasons stopping you doing so
