“I have been working for the Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT) for over 7 years now and am pleased to say that I feel very privileged not only to work in a friendly and professional environment with my co-workers and stakeholders but more so that I am able to assist families on a daily basis during their difficult time of need. I find it to be a rewarding experience and am extremely honoured to be a part of the SMCT.” ESMP

“During my time at SMCT I have witnessed significant culture change at both WMP and ESMP. These changes have been very positive with increased staff engagement being the platform for improvement in all areas of our business. I myself have enjoyed the continual and enjoyable learning experience of working in such a pleasant and dynamic environment and am excited to be part of the future growth and success of SMCT.” WMP

“As a long standing employee of WMP I have witnessed great change in the last five years. I must say that it has been a pleasure to work for WMP and although some changes have taken a while to settle and run smoothly, you can see the transformation just by driving through the gates into another world of tranquillity and peace. All staff should be proud of the achievements and progress that has taken place, as in my view, we are up there with the best.” WMP

“Working at SMCT is a supportive, motivational and team-orientated environment. Employees value working with their peers and often refer to them as their “second family”. SMCT has a clear mission and value statement that is congruous internally and externally. In a “not so attractive industry”, working at SMCT gives you a sense of strong community on an ongoing basis.” ESMP

“In the past 17 years I have worked at WMP. I have seen a lot of employees and management come and go, there has also been a lot of changes especially in the past 5-10 years. I myself can really see all staff members are not just here to do a job, they really want to do a great service for the public. These changes are a reflection on the fabulous management team we have and it is an absolute pleasure coming to work every day.” WMP
