The census takes place once every ten years and is a count of our population and housing. It is the largest and most complex statistical exercise undertaken in Northern Ireland and provides a benchmark on the size of our population. Census statistics are also used by central and local government, health providers, academia, commercial businesses and others to develop policies and plan services.
The next census is planned for 21st March 2021 and will be managed by the Census Office within the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA). We are seeking to recruit Census Enumerators across Northern Ireland to undertake the census field work.
As an Enumerator you will work from home and carry out enumeration duties in your allocated Enumeration District (ED). The main focus of the role will be following up with all households from which a census form has not been received.
Completed application forms must be returned to arrive not later than 12:00 noon (UK time) on Friday 30 October 2020.
