Job Description

The Audio Guide To Wills consists of approx. 43 individual MP3 files that can be played independently from our second web site. Although it is under construction, you can see the site and get a flavour of what we are trying to achieve at

For your further information you can see our main site at

Each of the scripts varies considerably in length averaging around 300 words. Some of the scripts are similar with a few changes to account for differences in legislation in England & Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

As we are not script writers we would also be interested in receiving quotes which include small rewrites to the script. Please specify if you wish to offer this additional service and whether your quote is fully inclusive of this.

We are also seeking advice on the use of music for the lead in to the introduction. Your comments would be appreciated and whether or not you can provide this.

--------Script for the intro is as follows: --------

Welcome to the Audio Guide To Wills.

No one likes to think about what happens when they die. But if you don't, your family could suffer delays, hardship and worry - even costly legal bills.

Making a Will means that what you own goes to those you care most about and not those that the Government has chosen. And, if you have young children, you can include in your Will your choice of Guardians rather than leaving the decision to the courts or social services.

A Will is an important step towards peace of mind for you and security for your family. And this is why we have put together this Audio Guide To Wills.

In this Guide you will hear explanation of some of the most common issues that concern people when making or considering making a Will. We have tried to keep the explanations as easy to understand as possible, covering subjects such as what you can and cannot gift in your Will.
What are Trusts and how do they work? How does marriage, divorce or a civil partnership affect your Will? And, how do I get my Will signed, dated and witnessed correctly so that my Will is legally valid?

These subjects and many more are covered in this Audio Guide To Wills. However, not all subjects will be relevant to you. So, feel free to listen to those subjects that concern you and ignore those that don’t.

Whether you live in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland (or indeed are an ex-pat living abroad) we have tried to make this Audio Guide To Wills relevant to your situation. However, there are some small but very important differences in the law on Wills depending on where you live or are domiciled. For your benefit, and where possible, we have tried to include in this Audio Guide To Wills the major differences affecting you. For example, the requirements for signing and witnessing a Will are different in Scotland than for the rest of the UK. Get this wrong and your Will could later be declared invalid and usually when it’s too late to do anything about it.

So, enjoy this Audio Guide To Wills. Sit back, listen and learn. This may well be the first time you’ve made a Will. However, we hope that by listening you will be better informed and will go on to make a Will that will bring peace of mind for you and security for your family.
