Having spent 36 years in the jewellery trade with EJ Gallichan and latterly Aurum Jewellers, Julian changed career and joined Maillards in as Managing Funeral Director.
A proven customer service operator, Julian and team are always on hand to answer questions and assist in all parts of funeral planning.
I have worked in the Funeral Industry since 2001. This is more than just a job to me. it’s a vocation and I am honoured to be apart of this world.
In late 2021 I decided I wanted to do something more rewarding and fulfilling. I joined Maillards Funeral Directors, initially as a Mortuary Technician. The role involved the collection, preparation, and care of the deceased. I was also involved in the ceremonial side attending funerals as a Bearer, and Attendant. I gained my PSV in April 2022 to enable me to drive funeral vehicles as needed. In July 2022 I was promoted to Funeral Director, and since then I have been focusing on organising and directing funerals and providing compassionate advice and support to families and friends.
Maria has helped at Maillards for a long time in the back rooms and assisting at funerals. She has also driven the hearses from time to time. Maria is now a full-time member of the team as of 2023 and we are happy to have her onboard.
I work on reception as my main role at Maillards, I am usually the first point of contact.
Since working at Maillards I relate to all my colleagues as “the dream team” which is probably an understatement!
Everybody at Maillairds is real with the biggest hearts, empathy, and compassion.
I love my job as it is so rewarding, we all feel like we make a difference in helping people during very difficult times of grief.
