Be a part of Census 2021

Temporary appointment from 06 March 2021 until 07 May 2021.

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 now seeking to recruit temporary Census Enumerators across Northern Ireland to undertake the census field work. This role is key in ensuring the success of Census 2021.

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.

There are a number of posts available in each census area. Census areas will be broadly aligned to local government (council) districts:

• Antrim and Newtownabbey

• Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon
• Belfast (2 areas)
