Registration Officer (Registrars & Events)

Registration Officer (Registrars & Events)
Scale 5 (£22,183 - £24,491)
37 Hours, Full Time - 5 days out of 7 (including some weekend work)
Temporary, 12 months
Register Office, Stockport Town Hall
 
Do you want to play an essential role in the lives of Stockport Residents?
 
Significant events such as births, deaths and marriages affect us all at some point in our lives.  Corporate Support Services is looking to appoint a Registration Officer in its Events and Registrars team.
 
As a Registration Officer you will continue to provide a high-quality frontline Registration Service for residents of Stockport.  Attention to detail will be imperative.  The service is highly regulated in line with all legislation, procedures and performance standards determined by the General Register Office (Home Office).
 
As a Registration Officer you will be responsible for registering births, deaths; and arranging preliminaries to marriages and civil partnerships.  
 
The role will mean officiating at marriage, civil partnership and other non-statutory ceremonies at the Town Hall, and approved premises across the borough.  A high level of confidence, assurance, and of course, jubilance is expected in these circumstances. The post holder will also need to demonstrate care and compassion in dealing with families, particularly when dealing with death registrations.
 
Events and Registrars is a relatively new team within the Council and being a team player is essential.  The wider team is now much more commercial in its activity, being responsible for events at various Council venues including the Town Hall, Bramall Hall, Chadkirk Chapel and Vernon House. 

Training will be provided for all the necessary Registration duties, so prior experience of working in the Registration service is not essential.  

Please contact Sharon Knight (Registration Service Manager) on 0161 474 3444 or at sharon.knight@stockport.gov.uk for an informal discussion about the role.
