Did you know that Canada imported over $500 billion worth of goods from foreign suppliers last year? Have you ever wondered about the process involved in bringing those goods across the border?
Pacific Customs Brokers plays an important role in assisting importers to ensure their products are eligible to enter into Canada. We do it all- from handling the paperwork on an importer’s behalf, to figuring out how to get their product from point A to point B, to helping them understand how a new trade agreement will affect their business. If it involves international trade, we’re the go-to experts.
Pacific Customs Brokers has been providing premium brokerage services for over 65 years and has become one of the leading privately-owned brokerage houses in Western Canada. Customs brokerage is our passion and we owe our success to the dedicated and knowledgeable staff who work here.
As demand continues to grow for our services, we are looking to add full-time Customs Administrative Assistants with an interest in international trade to our team. This is a great opportunity for someone with Customer Service Representative (CSR) experience to apply their service skills into a long-term career. With time, experience and education, this position would ideally start your journey to becoming a fully-licensed Customs Broker.
Because international trade is a 24/7/365 business, this role is on a shift-based schedule, with time assignments which will vary and will include days, afternoons, and at times overnights. This is not a Monday to Friday daytime job, and the shift will also usually include a Saturday and/or Sunday. Shift schedules will be assigned at least a month in advance and employees will always be full-time.
We're located at the US/Canada border crossing (176th Street and 1st Avenue) in South Surrey/White Rock. There's no public transportation to our office so you must have a vehicle to get here.
Candidates with previous administrative or customer service experience are encouraged to apply.
