We’re looking for drivers to join our team at Co-op Funeralcare and Life Planning. We don’t expect you to have any particular experience, just a full UK driver’s licence and the right passion to join a business which puts people at the heart of its strategy.

What you’ll do:
• drive a limo or hearse on the day of the funeral
• make sure you follow planned routes and timescales
• provide a professional and empathetic chauffeur service
• maintain vehicles; washing before and after each funeral so they’re kept to the highest standards
• carry the coffin on funeral ceremonies and respectfully deal with floral and other tributes

This role would suit people who have:
• a UK manual driving licence (for at least 2 years if you’re based in Northern Ireland)
• a professional and caring approach
• the ability to take and follow instructions to the letter
• a calm approach in changing situations
• pride in their appearance

an understanding that each and every funeral is unique
