Customs Officers and Assistant Customs Officers have a key frontline role to protect and enhance the interests of New Zealand by managing security and community risks associated with the flow of people, goods and craft into and out of New Zealand and by collecting customs and excise revenue. Both roles have a crucial role to play, each having a different area of focus that will appeal to different people. Both roles require a high level of judgement and the flexibility to work a variety of shifts including weekends, nights and public holidays.

Customs Officers complete a range of functions across our Operational areas with a focus on law enforcement and securing New Zealand's border.
Customs Officers identify risks, perform assurance and audits and use investigative skills to enable facilitation or intervention as required.
Applicants of the Customs Officer process start as Trainee Customs Officers and are only sworn in as Customs Officers after successful completion of a nine week training programme.
