At the time of the death of a loved one, in addition to all the emotions involved with loss, there come decisions to be taken, and taken quickly, around funeral arrangements.

 

Responding to widespread concern that many, especially people on low incomes, are tipped into debt in order to fulfil the very deep seated desire to give their loved one a ‘good send-off’, the Scottish Government are funding a pilot project in Dundee which, it is hoped, will provide support to people at this most distressing and confusing time. The Dundee Funeral Support Service is that pilot.

 

We are seeking a two Project Officers to develop and support the service, initially for an 8-month period. The Job Description lists the experience and skills required. But above all else, we require candidates with empathy, the ability to listen gently and be a trusting companion through the funeral arrangements period to help families achieve a respectful, dignified and affordable funeral package.

 

We are looking for two remarkable people. Are you one of them?
