Ceremonial Driver - typical role description

As a part-time ceremonial driver with Co-op you’ll drive a limo or hearse on the day of the funeral, and possibly help to bear the coffin of a client’s loved one. But this job’s about more than just driving. You’ll have to think and plan ahead, read situations and respond appropriately, using all your skills to make the day as easy as possible for our clients.

You’ll have an important role to play in delivering the very best service for our clients, supporting people in your community when they need it the most.

What you’ll do:

  • drive our ceremonial vehicles at the time of the funeral following planned routes and time scales
  • provide a professional and empathetic chauffer service to those travelling in your vehicle, taking into consideration their requirements throughout the journey
  • maintain the vehicles- washing them before and after each funeral so they’re kept to the highest standards
  • act as a coffin bearer on funeral ceremonies and respectfully deal with floral and other tributes
  • check everything is as perfect as it can be before each ceremony for the deceased and their families

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 instructions and follow them to the letter
  • a calm approach in changing situations
  • pride in their appearance
  • the ability to lift and no health reasons stopping you doing so
  • an understanding that each and every funeral is unique
  • the desire for a job working on a part time basis
