Title:  Customs Manager

Req ID:  75611

Amsterdam, Other, Netherlands

In our ‘always on’ world, we believe it’s essential to have a genuine connection with the work you do.


Imagine yourself as the manager of the Customs team at CommScope, a company committed to guaranteeing that all its customs processes are accomplished in full compliance with Dutch and EU regulations.


Join our team at CommScope's Veenendaal DC, and be a part of a team, committed to maintaining the highest standards of customs compliance, continuously improving processes, and building positive relationships with Dutch customs authorities.

How You'll Help Us Connect the World:
