We are looking to appoint relief Ceremony Officers working throughout the county to register marriages and civil partnerships, carrying out all related duties and responsibilities in compliance with the Registration Acts. After gaining experience you will then also conduct statutory and non-statutory ceremonies at Registration Offices, religious buildings and Approved Premises.


You will:


  • Have the ability and confidence to use your own initiative (within set legal parameters).

  • Be able to work accurately under pressure, with clear legible handwriting and the highest attention to detail

  • Demonstrate enhanced organisation skills.

  • Exhibit excellent communication and presentation skills, including public speaking to small and large groups.

  • Deliver an exceptionally high quality, customer focused, service.

  • Have the ability to travel to and from over 75 Approved Premises across Cambridgeshire, as well as our own locations and some religious buildings.

As a relief Ceremony Officer you will ideally need to be available to work some weekdays, 2 or 3 Saturdays per month, along with occasional Sundays and Bank Holidays.  The work pattern is variable with a high demand for ceremonies in the summer months and availability during the summer holidays is essential.


Salary scale is currently £11.70 to £12.92 per hour, with enhanced rates for Saturdays (x 1.5), Sunday (x 1.78) and Bank Holidays (x 2).  Successful applicants will start at bottom of scale unless they have relevant recent registration experience. Full training and support will be provided, so prior experience is beneficial but not essential.


We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Cambridgeshire and want our workforce to be reflective of this diversity, which we believe benefits our employees, the organisation, and our communities.
