2024 Customs Coordinator

  • Bergen, Vestland, Norway
GAC Norway

Job description

About the Position

With continued increased activity and healthy business growth, GAC Norway is looking to fill 2 Customs Coordinator positions to support our Customs Department. These positions provide a unique opportunity to collaborate with a diverse team of colleagues in the maritime industry in a company that values what each unique individual brings to the table.

The role of a Customs Coordinator requires strong organisational skills as well as the ability to follow routines and to recognise irregularities. We will prioritise candidates with relevant customs experience, but we will also consider candidates with education, experience, or skill working with numbers and structure. This opportunity is open to anyone interested in the industry but with no formal experience as well as those with years of experience looking for new challenges in a company that values your competency.

To ease training and operational efficiency, we prefer candidates that live in the Bergen area and can work from the office, especially for an entry level position. Some adjustments may be possible to support personal challenges, including working from home or another of our offices.

Do you like to “think outside the box" or have a disability that has given you additional skills and a unique perspective? Perhaps it's planning the day in detail or a trained approach to evaluating a new challenge. Then YOU are encouraged to apply regardless of age, gender, cultural background, or disability. We value your opinions and knowledge!

We believe in maintaining an environment where all voices are heard – an environment that embraces diversity and respects everyone. Personal qualities are emphasised!
