Census creates temporary jobs

01 December 2010

​With the 2011 census fast approaching, the Statistics Unit is asking members of the public to get involved, with a recruitment campaign for a range of jobs to help ensure that the census runs smoothly.

The census takes place on 27 March and will create up to 200 temporary jobs. Census recruits will work in the community, providing important help and support to make sure everyone can complete and return their census questionnaire.

The majority of the roles are for census enumerators, who will be required to verify addresses and deliver census questionnaires to households on a part-time basis over a 3 week period before census day.

There will also be 10 positions for office-based staff, who will collate and enter data from returned questionnaires. The office-based roles are expected to last for 4 - 5 months.

Head Statistician at the Statistics Unit, Duncan Gibaut, said “Recruiting the right people for these roles is essential for the success of the census.

“The census is not just about counting people - the information it provides helps us in our future planning for vital services like schools, hospitals, and roads. We need to make sure that everyone filling in the census questionnaire is able to access help and support, and this will be provided by the people in these temporary positions.”

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 22 December. Further information about the roles, along with application forms, is available on the census section of the website. Paper copies can be collected from the reception areas at Cyril Le Marquand House and Social Security.
