10 (and more!) reasons why Poppy's is a great place to work!

10 (and more!) reasons why Poppy's is a great place to work!

The team at Poppy's
Who wouldn’t want to join this team?

Tooting-based Poppy’s Funerals is growing fast and are now looking for two talented people to join their committed, ambitious team that’s revolutionising the funeral sector.

We asked the team to tell us why they love working at Poppy’s. Once they got started, we couldn’t get them to stop!

  1. Incredible clients and incredible colleagues who never cease to amaze and inspire us.

  2. No tedious office politics or pointless, long-winded meetings.

  3. Waving goodbye to a long commute (if you are lucky enough to live in and around Tooting).

  4. The sense of adventure, and the wonderful ‘not knowing what each day will bring’ feeling.

  5. Plenty of room to park a bicycle (or car if you insist) – one advantage of working in a cemetery.

  6. Being in an environment where everyone is fizzing with energy, where ideas are welcomed, where you are valued and respected and everybody's contribution matters to the success of Poppy's.

  1. The homely, welcoming office surrounded by peaceful open spaces, the magnolia tree in bloom outside the window, art on the wall, doughnuts on Friday, and hectares of cemetery for lunching al fresco when spring rolls around.

  2. Birthday cake (always), 10 types of tea in the kitchen, terrific nights out.

  3. Friendly, talented workmates who between them are passionate about pangolins and serious about swing dancing, tell good jokes, play the ukulele, laugh loudly and bake brilliantly.

  4. It’s very grounding.

  5. It’s fun. Many people are surprised to hear this, that because we deal with death, every day must be miserable. We aren’t. Our work is uplifting.

  6. Regular supervisions and time to reflect on the tough stuff.

  1. Hearing that our clients value what we do.

  2. Heading for home each evening (on time at 5pm) knowing we’ve made a real difference.

  3. Finding it impossible to imagine doing anything else.

  4. Being trusted and encouraged to take important decisions and use our judgement.

  5. 100% job satisfaction.

  6. Looking forward to going to work!

The list keeps going, but we ran out of space. If this sounds like your kind of workplace, check out the job descriptions and apply by April 15.
