Musgrove Willows Coffins has been growing and supplying willow for almost 100 years and for the past decade have been an industry leader in supplying bespoke willow coffins to funeral directors and the families they look after. 

We now have an exciting opportunity for a finishing and dispatch assistant to join our award-winning family business.

Every one of our coffins is hand woven on site using willow sorted and graded by hand. This process allows us to maintain exceptionally high standards of quality and service and you will be an integral part of this process and our team. 

You will be responsible for working to tight deadlines, checking information, lining and boxing coffins and helping to finish orders with a high attention to detail. Our business is highly emotive, and this is represented in the care and detail we give to every coffin.

  • Highly efficient and acute attention to detail
