In addition, as the Senior Customs Data Processor, they are happy to consider a hybrid working pattern. Home working would consist of one or two days working from your home between Tuesday and Thursday, giving you a great work / life balance with reduced traveling time and costs.

You will be working for a company who add value to freight services, they deliver state of the art, fully digitalised Customs, and International Trade processes.

In this role you will be responsible for processing client data including shipping information, following, and applying Customs and Excise duties and procedures as appropriate. You will also learn how to operate Duty Management Computer Systems and assist with day-to-day duty management accounts, ensuring they are operated according to their authorisation and specific SOP.
