Overview

For over a decade, Smart Cremation has put in place thousands of prearrangement plans across the country. Our purpose is to give families the very best in care at the very worst time – when they’ve lost someone close to them. We cannot take away the grief and stress that loss brings, but we can help to carry those burdens alongside them.

In the last several years Smart Cremation has been adapting to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s families. As more and more individuals are choosing cremation over traditional burial, our priority is to connect an experienced team of Advisors with as many people as possible, so they can learn first-hand about the options we offer.

Smart Cremation is seeking a Funeral Director to support our operations Florida. The goal of the funeral director is to provide exemplary customer service to our internal and external customers. This position will be relied on to continue to keep Smart Cremation in total compliance with state and local requirements and to attend all field audits by the state. The successful candidate will have a current license in Florida and be available to stay on call during evenings and weekends. The selected individual will work from our regional office in either Fort Lauderdale, Naples, or Orlando, FL.
