Poppy’s Internship: Apply now!

Poppy’s Funerals is an award-winning young company with big ambitions. Would you like to join us?

What’s this all about?

We run a rolling 2 day internship programme because we know that you, our future recruits, never imagined you’d end up working for a funeral company. You’re probably searching for more meaningful work, but you haven’t thought to look here yet. So we figure we need to give great people like you the opportunity to fall in love with this work the way we have. It’s an opportunity for you to get to know us and for us to get to know you.

Might it eventually turn into a full time job?

Yes. We are always on the lookout for great people to join our team. The ultimate purpose of the internship is to find our team members of the future.

What would you get out of it?

What would an average day be like?

We’re a small team so you’d be getting involved with everything we do, from meetings with families to caring for the dead to carrying coffins. There is no monotonous routine with interns chained to the photocopier. Every day is exciting and different as we’re responding to real time events.

What are we looking for?

You don’t need any death/dying/funeral-related experience at all. In fact, no one in the team had seen a dead person before they started at Poppy’s! But you must be:


The programme is 2 full days, from 8.30am-5pm. We recognise you may already be in full time employment in which case planning a meaningful exit strategy is not easy – we understand, we’ve all been in your position. If you are serious about making a schedule work, so are we.

Apply now!

Don’t miss the boat. The sooner you get in touch, the sooner you can start. To let us know why you think you’d be right for Poppy’s, send a CV & covering letter to kate@poppysfunerals.co.uk
