Receptionist/Office Assistant

Beauchamp Funeral Home are looking for a front-line person to be the face of their family owned and operated business, providing outstanding customer service to their clientele at their time of need.

This is a role that offers variety from Reception, Office Management to Secretarial duties with no day being the same.

Beauchamp Funeral Home understands how devastating it can be to lose a loved one and the importance of being supported and given skilled guidance at every stage of the funeral process.

This amazing opportunity offers variety and huge job satisfaction, in making every part of the funeral process run smoothly from the very start.

You will be the first point of contact for clients wanting to enquire about the services offered by Beauchamp Funeral Home, whom operate 3 separate funeral homes within our region.

You will have an engaging and friendly personality to put the client at ease from the very first contact and will be present throughout the entire process.

From booking the client in with the Funeral Director, to coordinating materials from paper notices, service sheets, digital photo displays and much more. You will need to have a high level of accuracy and will also need to be computer savvy as technology plays a big part in the funeral process when family and loved ones cannot be there.

You will always be smartly dressed as first impressions do matter and will be a very good communicator with a warm demeanour at all times.

It is the little things that count and make all the difference at this difficult time for family and friends and you will have the attention to detail skill come naturally to you, from setting up the beautiful viewing rooms for members to come and view their loved one, fresh flowers always on display, correct lighting offering a warm ambience.

This is a busy role with sometimes 2 or 3 services being held per day and would not suit someone who is not confident with their emotions. You will also be a team player and someone who can roll up their sleeves to get things done, from vacuuming to delivering service sheets to another home if and when required.

What we are looking for in you is personality, empathy, a team player, accurate computer skills, smart presentation, full drivers licence, and above all, someone who has an holistic approach to client care and can give this 100% at all times.


If you feel you are the person we are looking for, please apply with a Cover Letter outlining your qualities for this position along with an updated CV (in Word format).
