Of course this could be a great platform for those of you with a law degree wanting to develop your legal career with a business which puts people at the heart of its strategy.

What you'll bring

  • Excellent customer service skills
  • An eye for detail and the ability to work in a dynamic environment
  • A Law Degree or some legal experience would be desirable but this is not essential
  • Administration experience is also desirable
We can offer you a whole world of opportunity in return. As well as a competitive salary and some brilliant benefits including discounts and an onsite gym, you'll get the chance to develop your skills and progress your career with us. We are going on a journey.

We're going back to being Co-op

172 years ago a group of businessmen in Rochdale created an idea that changed the world. They believed that when people work together, they're stronger. And that principles are just as important as profits. They were pioneers. And they left us a legacy that's never been more important or relevant than it is today.

That's why we're going back to being Co-op. We want to change the world all over again, and we hope you'd like to join us on our journey. So, if you believe in our purpose, and are passionate about building a career in Funeralcare, join us and make a real contribution to the revival of an iconic British brand
