Beckfords appoints funeral director
ZAC HANNIS has joined Beckford’s Funeral Services as a funeral director having previously worked for the family-owned business as a pall-bearer.
Originally from Alderney, Mr Hannis’s previous employment experience includes gaining a trade in the construction industry whilst achieving a diploma in site management.
He has had several spells volunteering at an orphanage in Ghana, Africa, and provides his organisational skills as a committee member of St Pierre Park golf club.
‘On the rare occasions when we look to hire, we look for some very specific skill sets from applicants and Zac’s experience and life skills stood out,’ said Jane Duquemin, managing director of Beckford’s Funeral Services.
‘Being a funeral director is a way of life rather than a job and Zac has fitted in very quickly to the role.’
Mr Hannis said: ‘It’s a real honour to be a part of people’s lives at such an intensely personal time and to feel you are making a supportive and positive difference. I feel incredibly lucky to have been appointed to such a rewarding role.’
