Job Description — Despatch Assistant

Despatch Assistant

At CGP we strive to provide our customers with a first class product and service. From the second a customer places an order we put 100% effort into making every process in our warehouse really slick to ensure that we achieve our main key performance indicator: same day despatch.

Role & Responsibilities

Based at Millom you’ll be part of the Despatch and Production Team, picking and packing books to fulfil customer orders. Orders can vary greatly from a single book or DVD requested by a parent to several box loads sent daily to our school and retail customers, but the promise is the same — all orders placed before 5pm will be despatched same day. At times this area can be extremely busy and you will need an eye for detail to make sure that all orders are picked quickly and accurately.

You’ll also work within the Production environment, assisting with a variety of tasks including multi-packing, packaging practice papers and mail-shot collation. It’s absolutely essential that you’re enthusiastic and willing to do whatever’s needed. Having the skills to carry out light maintenance duties would also be advantageous.


You’ll be bright and positive with a keen eye for detail. Highly self-motivated with the ability and drive to make sure your work is completed to the highest standard, you’ll also be:

  • Numerate and literate
  • Willing and flexible
  • A hard worker with great teamwork skills
  • Physically fit
  • Comfortable using a PC
  • Flexible and happy to do whatever’s needed
