The RRR’s




Australia’s Funeral Industry is facing severe staff shortages. Our organisation, Independent Funeral Industry Support Services (IFISS), is dedicated to improving the practice and professionalism of our Industry which is now estimated to be worth more than $1.6 billion. 

The Professional Development Day is for both Funeral Home operators and those considering a career in the industry. One of the most important topics we’ll be discussing is recruitment. How do we attract and select the right people to our industry?

A chronic scarcity of trained and experience people, means businesses involved in the death care services are often understaffed. When employees are sick or take leave, it can place enormous pressure on business owners and the rest of the team. The industry needs a new attitude and approach to who we want to attract to our industry and the most effective way to go about it. We’ll be exploring this further on the day. 

The Professional Development Day is equally intended for anyone considering a career in death care services, you will gain a better understanding of how the industry operates, the wide range of opportunities available, training and transferable skills that make you an ideal candidate, and how to build a long and rewarding career. 

Seminar sessions will be conducted by industry leaders who bring a fresh approach to the way the industry can attract and develop people to our profession.
