Census March 2021 Recruitment of field staff

The ONS is recruiting over 35,000 field staff to encourage householders to fill in their questionnaires and maximise census response rates.

As the public face of the census, field staff are essential to its success. Large-scale recruitment specialists, Adecco, will manage the recruitment of census field staff. Still, we need local authorities’ help promoting job opportunities to attract suitable, local candidates.

We look to recruit people with knowledge of the local area and who can relate to the communities within it. The hours are flexible and include the opportunity to work part-time, evenings and weekends. Local authority employees are encouraged to apply. We also appreciate you sharing details about census recruitment via your newsletters, websites and other publications, plus when communicating with your community groups and volunteers in person.
