If we had a pound for every time somebody said “haven’t you got a lovely job” we would be millionaires! The reality is that they are very satisfying as well as being very demanding; although some duties are joyous, such as registering births and marriages, we also register deaths, still births and register civil ceremonies where an individual is terminally ill.
We are often the first point of contact for people who are facing difficult and tragic circumstances and also people experiencing optimistic and exciting times. Therefore, we are required to be aware and react to each individual situation and obtain the necessary information, following the legislation procedures as instructed by the General Register Office, to complete the registration within the allotted appointment time.
A lot of the role is clerical in nature and part of that is the issuing of certificates of past events that occurred in the Kirklees district. We hold records for births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships from 1837 to present.
You will need a flexible approach to working hours, and may be required to work weekends and bank holidays on a rota basis.
