  • Work on content development for Whish marketing campaigns as directed
  • Receive inbound calls from both customers, vendors and clients and forward them appropriately
  • Assist customers with orders, inquiries and other issues via phone, live chat and email
  • Assess the customer’s concerns or questions and address them in an appropriate, timely manner
  • Document pertinent information and update records in database
  • Bring important issues up with management so that any problems can be resolved easily for future orders
  • Warehouse and order fulfillment related tasks as required
  • Other duties as assigned


  • Prior administrative experience
  • Clear communication skills, written and verbal
  • Ability to write exciting yet concise text
  • Proficient in the use of computers, including accurate typing ability
  • Courteous, professional and enthusiastic telephone manner
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced team environment
  • Good listener
  • Previous customer service, customer support or call centre experience is an asset
  • Previous writing experience in a professional environment is an asset
  • Previous experience with marketing through multiple social media channels is an asset

So if you’re ready to put your outstanding organizational and customer service skills to work in an environment that’ll support you and encourage you to be your best, please apply by submitting your resume.
