Census Collectors – will you be one?

April 13, 2011

Australia’s largest ever job drive has begun.

From today, approximately 29,000 casual Census Collector jobs are available.

Census Collectors are needed to help deliver and collect approximately 14.2 million Census forms to Australia’s 9.8 million households.

Across Australia, Collectors will be responsible for about 500 households in cities or about 200 households in Australia’s regional areas.

With more than 100 languages spoken across Australia and a large section of society coming from a non-English speaking background, knowledge of an additional language will be an added advantage.

Head of the Population Census program Paul Lowe says Collectors are critical to the success of the Census.

“Census Collectors are the most important cog in the Census machine. Without Collectors, Australia could not be counted,” Mr Lowe says.

Mr Lowe says Collectors make an enormous difference to the quality and accuracy of the data produced from the Census.

“The data has benefits for every state, every town and every community in Australia. Being a Collector is a great opportunity to help your neighbourhood.”

Census Collectors will receive between $1,300 and $2,800 for the casual position and will be employed from 1 July until 8 September.

Applicant information kits are available online at www.abs.gov.au/census
