Bureau of Customs hiring 150 personnel for restructuring

The Bureau of Customs (BOC) has started hiring 150 new personnel as the agency restructures itself. The BOC is undertaking massive recruitment, having announced in February that the bureau will prioritize filling up more than 3,000 vacancies – more than half its workforce. The initial 150 positions will be for the reinforcement of customs laws, rules, and regulations. "We need to take advantage of the more than 50% unfilled vacancies.

We will beef up our team with 3,000 more employees this year and an additional 4,000 once the proposed executive order for restructuring is signed," Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon said. Successful applicants will undergo a 6-month paid training with the Philippine Customs Training Center (PCTC). "Those who finished the training shall be guaranteed of plantilla positions, and are expected to develop a deeper sense of patriotism, excellence, non-violence, safety, integrity, and leadership," Faeldon said. Promotions are also up for grabs for current BOC employees who are next in rank. "The BOC adheres to a more stringent process of hiring and promotion. We are looking for personnel who are skilled, educated and with integrity," Faeldon said. The BOC said applicants can only apply for one position, and that applicants in 2016 must re-submit documents. Faeldon said applicants are not required to enclose in their documents "external recommendations."
