Assuming you have created custom module to do this operation .

So in your Vendor_Module directory create one directory called etc.

In etc directory create one file called events.xml

Put below code in events.xml file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="adminhtml_customer_save_after">
        <observer name="Vendor_Module_Customer_Save_After" instance="Vendor\Module\Observer\Customersaveafter" />

Now you need to create observer for the same . so create directory called Observer in your Vendor/Module Directory

In your observer directory create Customersaveafter.php file

namespace Vendor\Module\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\Observer as EventObserver;
use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;

class Customersaveafter implements ObserverInterface
    protected $_request;
    protected $_layout;
    protected $_objectManager = null;
    protected $_customerGroup;

    * @param \Magento\Framework\ObjectManagerInterface $objectManager
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Context $context,
        \Magento\Framework\ObjectManagerInterface $objectManager,
    ) {
        $this->_layout = $context->getLayout();
        $this->_request = $context->getRequest();
        $this->_objectManager = $objectManager;

    * @param \Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer
    * @return void
    public function execute(EventObserver $observer)
        echo "Do your operaiton here";

Note : adminhtml_customer_save_after event is called after adding the customer
