Do you know someone who’d make a great Member Pioneer like Abimbola?

In April we recruited 60 Member Pioneers to work in communities across the UK – special people who share our passion to make great things happen locally.

Already they’re bringing colleagues, members and local causes together, listening to their communities and inspiring other members to get things done. 

But we need even more Member Pioneers to work closely with our stores, funeral homes and local causes.

By the end of 2017 we’re aiming for 200 Member Pioneers in 450 regions. And by 2020 we hope to have a Member Pioneer in all of our 1,500 communities.

If you know a member in your community who’d be a good fit, want to find out more about the role of a Member Pioneer, or are a colleague member who’s interested in this opportunity, please make sure you visit
