More specifically, this role may incorporate providing technical advice, developing referrals, devising customs and international trade focused marketing initiatives and an element of responsibility for developing business opportunities, whilst ensuring that the needs of our clients are met. On a daily basis, this role may include liaising with clients to resolve queries, communicating with internal departments to ensure deadlines are met and overseeing client portfolios to ensure HMRC deadlines are met, as a well as assisting the partners in delivery of cross-cutting advisory projects.
In terms of qualifications, we want to ensure we are offering the best service to our customers and we recognise that the knowledge and skill set required to successfully fulfil this role may have been developed over a period of practical experience and application, rather than only through a formal qualification process.
As a valued member of the Customs Team, you will have the opportunity to develop your skill set and knowledge base whilst at the same time providing quality, technical advice to our clients. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the growth and reach of the Customs Team and support the wider aims of the Azets group.
"This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing and productive customs team as the entire Azets group is growing and developing.

They will proactively assist to grow and develop our existing relationships, identify and forge new relationships and reinforce and promote the reputation of Azets in the customs and excise duty arena.
