FHT Green Burial Restructuring – An Invitation to Join the Team

It has become clear that it is time to restructure the Green Burial side of the Findhorn Hinterland Trust and in particular the Funeral Co-ordination role. To this end the trust would like to announce opportunities to join their team as part of the Wilkies Wood Green Burial Sub-group.

The Funeral Co-ordinator’s role and associated responsibilities are to be split into three to provide a more cohesive and sustainable way forward for Green Burials in Wilkies Woods:

1st Role: Funeral Advisor
This person would be the first point of call for anyone seeking to have a final resting place within the green burial ground. They would guide and assist people with all necessary information in order for them to make a choice as to whether this is the right place for them or there loved one to be buried, oversee the purchasing of a lair and distribution of lair certificates.

2nd Role: Funeral Co-ordinator 
They would liaise with family and friends who have had a bereavement and co-ordinate all parties involved including Funeral Directors, invited guests, the FHT Land Manager etc in order to gracefully hold a funeral/burial or interment of ashes on the site.

3rd Role: Land Manager Assistant 
Kajedo Wanderer is the current FHT Land Manager and we are seeking someone to support him in this role specifically by being available and ready to arrange for the location, marking out and creation of a lair/grave for the deceased.

Training and advice for all three of these paid positions would be provided. They would be created on a strictly part time/casual basis and would call upon the individuals employed to be involved when a funeral was to take place thus allowing the person to carry on working in their existing employment as long as they had this flexibility.

We very much look forward to hearing from you,
