Job Description


Night Ambulance Crew
£25,779 (including shift premium of 33.3%) per hour plus benefits
4 nights on 4 nights off shift pattern working 8pm until 8am

We're looking for people to join the Co-op Funeralcare and Life Planning team as night ambulance crew. You'll form part of one big team focussed on providing a seamless service and doing the right thing by our families.

As a part of a specialist night ambulance service, you'll carry out the collection and transportation of the deceased during the night. This allows us to have a 24-7 operation, supporting our clients when they need us, without putting extra strain on day time colleagues and so this is a really important role for us. You'll be working on a regular shift pattern, with shifts starting at 8pm and ending at 8am, and in return you'll receive premium pay and plenty of knowledge of your working pattern.

What you'll do

* collect the deceased during the night from a range of locations and scenarios, which sometimes can be distressing, in a professional, empathetic and dignified manner
* carry out support activities whilst at the funeral home including the care and preparation of the deceased, whilst not out in the ambulance
* work closely with the wider team making sure there's a clear hand-over for day time colleagues
* update and maintain records, on both written and digital platforms, in adherence with processes and regulation
* report into the care logistics manager, carrying out any requests as instructed

This role would suit people who have

* the desire and flexibility to work only night shifts
* a full UK manual driving licence (for at least 2 years if you're based in Northern Ireland)
* the ability to act promptly but in a measured and considered way
* the ability take instructions and follow them to the letter, with a high attention to detail
* a calm approach in sometimes distressing situations and the ability to think on your feet
* no problems manually lifting and no specific health reasons to stop you doing so

Why Co-op?

As a Co-op colleague you'll do work that matters in an organisation where principles are just as important as profits. You'll also get a package that includes:
* a competitive salary
* 23 days holiday (rising with service)
* discounts on Co-op products and services
* a pension with up to 10% employer contributions

Building an inclusive workplace

We're actively building diverse teams and welcome applications from everyone. But simply having a diverse workforce is not enough. We want to create an inclusive environment, where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences, and recognise the importance of our teams reflecting the communities they serve.

We can make adjustments to our interview process according to your needs. And we offer a flexible working environment so you can adjust your hours to suit your personal circumstances. You can find out more about Co-op people policies.
Once you've completed your application we'll email you inviting you to take part in an online assessment. You'll need to complete the assessment within 3 days of applying - it should only take around 12 minutes. The assessment is designed to help us (and you) understand how closely your personal values and motivations match our own. Once you've completed the assessment you'll receive a report outlining your results, and we'll get in touch to let you know the outcome no later than 3 working days following the closing date for this role.
