Working as a locum mortician

If you’re employed as an anatomical pathology technician, you might have to work during unconventional hours and shifts, which can affect your personal life. This is why a lot of our candidates opt for locum mortuary jobs. In this type of role, you get to have more influence over your schedule and can also gather valuable experience in different environments while performing post-mortem examinations. We also offer numerous opportunities in both the private sector and within NHS foundation trusts.
