The Philippine Bureau of Customs (BOC) is filling up an initial 150 vacant positions in line with its restructuring program.

Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon said the hires will help enforce the customs laws, rules, and regulations of the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act.

“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,” he said in a statement.

Aside from revenue collection, the BOC is mandated to secure the country’s border from illicit trade, ensure the speedy and ensure the efficient flow of trade and commerce.

“I encourage all applicants who meet the minimum requirements for vacant positions to apply until August 11 this year because the BOC needs you,” the commissioner said.

As of July 27, 2017, there are 150 job vacancies.  Successful applicants will comprise the first batch of employees who will undergo a six-month training at the Philippine Customs Academy (PCA).

Under a customs memorandum, applicants must submit the required documents to the Human Resource Management Division (HRMD).

BOC employees who are qualified next-in-rank are automatically included in the selection process as candidates for promotion within their organizational mother unit. They need to submit the following requirements:

  • Updated and duly accomplished Personnel Data Sheet (PDS/CS Form 212 Revised 2017) with attached Work Experience Sheet
  • Individual Commitment Review Form (IPCR) for the period July – December 2016 and January – June 2017

For BOC employees who are not next-in-rank, the following are required:

  • Letter of Intent (Form A)
  • Updated and duly accomplished Personnel Data Sheet (PDS/CS Form 212 Revised 2017) with attached Work Experience Sheet
  • Individual Commitment Review Form (IPCR) for the periods July – December 2016 and January – June 2017

Non-BOC employees who want to apply need to submit :

  • Letter of Intent (Form A -1)
  • Updated and Duly Accomplished Personnel Data Sheet (PDS/CS Form 212 Revised 2017) with attached Work Experience Sheet
  • Authenticated copy of Eligibility or License issued by the Civil Service Commission and Professional Regulation Commission, or Certificate of Admission to the Philippine Bar from the Supreme Court
  • Certified True Copy of Transcript of Records and Diploma
  • Copy of Training/Seminar Certificates
  • Certificate of Employment or Service Record (if government employee)
  • Copy of Performance Appraisal Report for the last two rating periods (for government employees only)

Applicants are allowed to apply for one position only. Those who submitted their applications in 2016 must re-submit the required documents, according to HRMD Acting Director Joseph Escasio.

Faeldon said “external recommendations” are not necessary and should not be among the documents to be submitted to the BOC-HRMD.

“The BOC adheres to a more stringent process of hiring and promotion. We are looking for personnel who are skilled, educated and with integrity,” the commissioner added.

Applicants who will be included in the short list shall undergo training for six months at the PCA.

The PCA was established to train future customs employees in self-defense, lifesaving training, and character building.

Its curriculum includes 50% character building and 25%  each for capacity and capability development.

The BOC is the only customs administration worldwide without an established training institution.

Faeldon said employees who undergo training would receive salaries. “Those who finish 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,” he said.

“The only way to reverse the culture of corruption is to instill the highest respect for public service among employees.”
