Part Time Registrar
The County Council’s Registration and Celebratory Service aims to deliver the best possible service to those officially registering life’s most significant events; such as births, deaths, marriages, civil partnership or gaining citizenship. These are the daily duties of a Registrar, but alongside these you will enhance the customer journey by providing valuable services such as ’Tell Us Once’ for birth and death registrations.
In addition you will be required to deliver statutory ceremonies of marriage and civil partnership, plus a wide range of non-statutory services for those celebrating other milestone occasions such as renewal of vows, child naming or civil funerals.
We are looking for exceptional people with the skills, enthusiasm and drive to help us achieve our high ambitions for service delivery to the people of Nottinghamshire. Accuracy, attention to detail and empathetic skills are absolutely essential to work in this field of registering life events precisely and sensitively, but above all you must enjoy working with people experiencing both the emotional high and low points in life.
We have a part-time Registrar position currently available of 30 hours over four days per week in the Central area of the service. The Central area provides service points in Mansfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Kings Mill Hospital, Eastwood and Hucknall. The regular work base is open for discussion, but you will be required to work flexibly across the whole area as necessary. On appointment the Registrar will quickly be required to fulfil practitioner duties in our busy frontline registration offices, therefore previous experience is highly desirable though not essential. The Registration service is keen to have a more representative and diverse workforce and would welcome male applicants and those of black and minority ethnicity as we are under represented in those and other key areas.
You need to demonstrate the relevant NCC corporate competencies and have particular skills to be:
Incredibly accurate, with an exceptional attention to detail
Confident in your ability to sensitively and accurately register births, deaths, marriages, civil partnerships and citizenships
Able to follow high level, complex legal guidelines and procedures
Competent in the use of a wide range of IT and digital systems
Approachable, courteous, tactful, enthusiastic, energetic and innovative
Used to dealing with the pressures of a diverse workload and deadlines, whilst responding flexibly and quickly to changing priorities
Confident in public speaking and able to command the attention of large groups of people
Setting a personally high standard of customer service
An experienced communicator, able to build and maintain relationships in both one to one and group situations
Assertive when required
We offer a busy, varied and inherently rewarding position, so if you think this may be the job for you, we welcome your application.
Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview. A job share scheme is available for all full time posts: both permanent and temporary, unless otherwise stated. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.
