Please join us in welcoming Rosario San Andres Cervilla, who joins the team at LS Customs as a Trainee Customs Coordinator. Rosario discusses her career progression, areas of expertise and future goals.
How has your career progressed to where you are now?
I studied marine biology at the University of Aberdeen and went on to achieve my diploma in ecology and environmental sustainability. Following this, I began a career in the oil and gas industry as a Marine Mammal Observer where I worked offshore on boats and rigs. When I heard that LS Customs were looking for a Trainee Customs Coordinator, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to learn something new whilst building on my past experience in the industry.
What is your area of expertise?
My previous employment and academic background have given me a vast knowledge of data collection and analysis, which are extremely useful skills in my current position. I also have a strong background in customer service, having worked in several customer-facing roles. I am looking forward to using that experience to provide clients with expert advice on their customs queries.
What has been the highlight of your career so far?
The highlight of my career has been joining the team at LS Customs and learning new skills. Currently, my main responsibility is to check import and export declaration entries and I am excited to continue expanding on my skillset as I advance in my career.
Do you have any goals that you would like to achieve in the next few years?
I would love to become a fully qualified Customs Coordinator and one day cycle The North Coast 500.
