MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Customs is accepting applications to fill 150 vacant positions but Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon told potential recruits that “external recommendations” are not necessary and should not be included in the documents they submit.

“The BOC adheres to a more stringent process of hiring and promotion. We are looking for personnel who are skilled, educated and with integrity,” Faeldon said in a statement released Saturday as the agency began the recruitment process.

He said the BOC seeks to recruit 3,000 more employees this year “and an additional 4,000 once the proposed executive order for restructuring is signed.”

Applications, including from current Customs employees, will be accepted until August 11.

The following are the categories of applicants and the documents they are required to submit to the Human Resource Management Division:
