Census recruitment of field staff is now open

In order to make sure the March 2011 Census reaches all areas of the community, people from all hard-to-reach groups (which include students as a hard to reach group) are being hired to help with the census.

The census is an estimate of all the people living in the UK. It takes place every 10 years and asks everyone the same questions on the same day to give a complete picture of the nation.

There are a variety of different positions, all ages and walks of life are needed, with different working hours and patterns - something for everyone. Anyone who has good skills, meets the requirements is looking to earn some extra cash and gain experience of working with the Office for National Statistics should apply.

Anyone interested can visit

The posts available include Census questionnaire collectors, census compliance staff and census coverage survey teams. Some of the posts and the type of work is ideally suited to students on a part time or full time basis so if you are interested don’t hesitate.

2011 Census staff will be employed directly by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), with ONS contractor, Capita, running recruitment, training and payroll services.
