The Census 2021 recruitment has started in England and Wales. Local people make the census, and thousands will need to be hired over the coming months.  

There are a range of exciting temporary roles available to make Census 2021 a success.

The census is a survey about all of us. Your help and enthusiasm is needed to encourage everyone in England and Wales to participate.

The census provides a picture of communities, which helps to plan and fund public services in your area. Nothing else gives so much detail about the society in which we live, helping to make decisions with the potential to transform lives for the better.

Whether you’re saving up for something or you want to make a real difference to your community, there’s a job for you.

If you are keen to find out more about the roles available, you can register now at  


The census roles are being designed to safeguard the health and safety of all candidates and staff. We are doing everything reasonably practical to reduce any risks caused by Covid-19.
