Transparency is central to us and we’ll maintain communication of your progress throughout the application and interview process. After you submit an application, you’ll receive an email acknowledgment that your resume has landed in our inbox. Our Human Resources Department will then review your application and will then either e-mail you or call you with more information.

At Northern Cemeteries we apply best practice assessment and selection methods which vary depending on the role you apply for. Successful candidates will be asked to undergo a pre-employment medical including a drug and alcohol test. At times we work with specialist recruitment agencies to find the right people. If you’ve submitted an application through a recruitment agency we’ll generally make contact with the agency directly. Northern Cemeteries does not accept unsolicited resumes or applications from agencies.
