Elliot Richards

Customs Facilitator

What are you here to do? 

At Sheffield International Trade Centre, my job is to support companies who trade within Europe or Internationally with their declaration needs, ensuring easy flowing movement of goods around the world.

Your ‘USP’ - what unique thing do you bring to the role that makes you brilliant at it? 

I’m a compliance led, fully trained Customs Broker who takes pride in ensuring the customers experience in using our ChamberCustoms service is as satisfying as can be. Having worked as an account manager at Sheffield Chamber prior to this job, I have seen first hand how supportive business relationships can help with business progression and growth and that is why we are here.

Why is Sheffield the best UK city to live, work and play? 

Sheffield is a vibrant city. I attended University here, got my first job here and enjoyed many days/nights out here. As a big outdoor and sport person, I’d say that there aren’t many other cities that can say they have a national park on their doorstep, have two professional football teams, a top tier Ice Hockey club and Basketball team and so many places for grass root and recreational sport.

The way the people and businesses work alongside each other and aid in any way they can is admirable and just to play a small part in what makes this city great, is what it is all about.
