Licensed Embalmer/ Funeral Director or Apprentice Embalmer position available until filled.
We at Silver Creek Mortuary in Taylor and Pinetop, Arizona, have been praying for the right individual to join our mortuary family and work together with us. Silver Creek Mortuary has been continually growing and expanding and now has need of more licensed help. It is great to be in a community that appreciates and recognizes our great positive momentum. You will see that this is more than a job opportunity, but includes being part of a small and welcoming community, as well as a great place to raise a family. There is hunting, fishing, skiing all within less than an hour. We serve three general markets; the White Mountain Apache tribe, local LDS, Catholic, Protestant traditional funerals and other local cremations, divided almost equally in thirds. The work will include embalming, scheduled on-call and weekend funeral services, and maintaining a professional and positive influence in the community. You will be joining two other licensed funeral directors, along with a great hard working staff who make each day enjoyable. No two days are ever the same. In fact after decades of experience we still enjoy recognizing “firsts” almost daily. The cost of living, being a little less, combined with the beautiful White Mountains make this a great place to live and work.
