Being a funeral director with Guardian Funerals
In the video below, Joanne McGrath, Regional Manager for Guardian Funerals, talks about the rewarding job of being a funeral director with Guardian Funerals as well as the skills needed.
It is a great privilege to be asked by a family to organise a goodbye to a loved one, one that is as unique as the person they have loved.
It takes a special type of person to do this role and Guardian Funerals' staff specialise in listening to a family's needs, understanding their emotions, as well as, through them, getting to know the person who is now gone.
We then use our care and experience to arrange a funeral service that celebrates the life, loves, interests and accomplishments of the deceased.
Our staff must be able to see through the shock and impact of a passing, and offer support and comfort to the bereaved. We then make suggestions about how all the moments of a loved one's life can be shared in an uplifting ceremony: one that reminds guests at the service of just how much pleasure, laughter and good company centres around the loved one who is now gone.
If you feel you have the life experience, the wisdom, and the understanding to know that every goodbye is different, we would love to hear from you.
