CEREMONIES USHER - Grade KR3 (£10 per hour)
Casual relief (working as and when required) contract
Based at The Mansion House Register Office, Tunbridge Wells
Kent Register Offices conduct marriage and civil partnerships, renewals of vows and welcoming ceremonies throughout the year, with the busiest times being throughout the peak months of June-September. These range from small ceremonies with 10-15 attendees up to larger ceremonies of 50-60 guests. Our Ushers are the first point of contact for all guests attending larger ceremonies at our Kent Register Offices.
To assist our Celebratory staff to deliver an excellent ceremony for our customers within the legal framework, we need the right people welcoming our customers to our venues and assisting with enquiries throughout the day. While relevant experience would come in handy, it isn’t essential – it’s much more important that you’re friendly, outgoing and approachable. If you enjoy working as part of a team, have a friendly helpful attitude to the public and are interested in delivering services to the community we would welcome a call from you.
This post is considered by KCC to be a customer-facing position. The Council therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) to ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English/Welsh sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are set out in the Job Description/Person Specification.
You will have good interpersonal skills, feel comfortable meeting the public and be able to facilitate the smooth running of ceremonies at our Kent Approved Premises (KAPs) by supporting Celebratory staff by liaising with and welcoming ceremonies guests.
Hours are worked on a Casual relief (as and when required) contract, with work being allocated according to the business need. The busiest days are Fridays and Saturdays throughout the peak months of June-September. Some busier days will involve multiple ceremonies in close succession.
Closing date: 31st May 2022
Interview dates: Wednesday 8th June 2022
