You will lead the transition from separate Customs and Immigration services to a combined department, integrating all functions and services within the two teams. Fulfilling the statutory role of Chief Immigration Officer, you will plan, direct, manage and oversee the activities and operations of the Revenue & Customs and Immigration Services, setting a direction and culture that builds public and organisational confidence and trust.

Developing and implementing effective policies, procedures and training plans you will ensure that the Portfolio Director and Collector of Customs & Excise has access to the best professional advice and information on all aspects of Customs and Immigration. Attending Committees, you will advise as required and engage with colleagues across the public service to deliver the strategic vision for Customs and Immigration.
