Logistics specialist Whistl has launched a recruitment campaign for its Devon-based operations ahead of the peak period.

The company is looking to recruit over 140 staff for seasonal roles within its fulfilment and contact centre facilities in Wrangaton, Plymouth and Paignton.

Whistl’s 300-strong Clientbase team manages inbound contact centre operations, warehousing, fulfilment and business support functions across a portfolio of more than 50 clients. The company said its fulfilment and warehouse operations continue to see huge growth as shopping habits migrate from the high street to home delivery.

The range of roles available cover customer service, picking, packing, stock control and goods in, plus support staff.

Whistl said the seasonal roles could lead to permanent posts with the company which has a policy of promoting from within, with the majority of senior positions at the firm filled from within the existing team.

David Fanous, MD at Clientbase, said: “These entry-level roles are a fantastic opportunity to join a successful company in the fast-growing online retail sector, serving well known UK brands from here in Devon. We’re a flexible employer offering competitive salaries and a variety of shift patterns in all our roles.”
