Customs officers work at airports and ports around the country, acting as the interface between New Zealand and the rest of the world. As their careers progress, officers can work as intelligence analysts, detector dog trainers or handlers, investigating officers and policy analysts, to name just a few of the positions available within Customs.
A career with Customs could take you anywhere.
Customs has developed an exciting new approach to recruiting. Trainee Customs Officers enter Customs as a group. From day one, these groups of trainees will go through their comprehensive training programme together. They develop the values, knowledge and skills that enable them to represent Customs with authority and professionalism in keeping with the respect Customs enjoys from the business community and the general public.
