Postal handling service Whistl has opened its new centre in Bolton, Greater Manchester in a move which will create 500 jobs. Sixty of the jobs have been ring-fenced to hep long-term out of work benefit claimants back into work. The official opening of the new site took place in July 2017, though Whistl began moving staff into the new site from April 2017 onwards. The site incorporates workers from the company's Leeds and Warrington sites, as well as allowing for further expansion and new job creation. There is no information available as to when the new jobs will be filled.
