BOC opens over 1,000 job vacancies-A A +A
Friday, July 25, 2014
SOME 1,000 job vacancies are being offered by the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in order to fill up the lack of manpower and further improve its service.
Customs Commissioner John Sevilla said the job openings totaling to 1,056, include first and second level positions for the agency's various groups, offices, and collection districts across the country.
"By filling up these vacancies, we will be able to provide a faster and better standard of service for importers, exporters and the public dealing with Customs.
On the average, we have over 3,000 entries and over 6,000 individual items being imported every day. Around 4,000 containers arrive in the country every day that we need to inspect," he said in a statement.
"In order to facilitate these transactions we need additional manpower. Right now, there are only 3,600 employees in BOC tasked to do a lot of mandates. The lack of manpower is further aggravated by natural attrition due to retirement, resignation, death, as well as dropping from the rolls, and dismissal from service," Sevilla added.
The available job positions are the following, Customs Operations Officer (COPO) I, II, III, and IV, (Salary Grade [SG] 10, 11, 13, 16, and 18 respectively); and Administrative Officer (ADOF) I, II, III, IV, and V (SG 10, 11, 15, and 18 respectively).
Interested applicants just need to visit www.customs.gov.ph to download the details and documents required for their applications, fill up the application form and submit together with the following supporting documents: updated Personal Data Sheet; Certificate of Eligibility issued by the Civil Service Commission, Professional Regulation Commission, or Supreme Court as appropriate; Transcript of Records and Diploma; certificates of trainings and seminars attended, if any; and Performance Appraisal Report for the last two rating periods for those who area already working in government offices.
Applicants must submit their applications either personally or by mail to the BOC office located at 16th Street, Port Area South Harbor, Manila.
A special booth will be set up at the lobby of the OCOM building to receive applications from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Provincial applicants may also send their applications via courier. Deadline for the submission of application is on August 6, 2014.
The BOC noted that applicants with relatives in the BOC up to the 4th degree of consanguinity are barred from applying for any position in the Bureau.
