Census Enumerator Jobs Now Advertised Online

Positions as census enumerators are now being advertised on-line according to Kildare North Fianna Fáil TD and Minister of State Áine Brady.

"On Sunday the 10th of April a census will be held in Ireland. In preparation for this, census enumerators will be hired all over Kildare."

"Census enumerators will need to distribute the census forms in advance of the 10th of April and return to homes to collect them once the census has taken place."

"Enumerators will also answer questions that people might have about the form."

"Those who are interested in applying for the positions should be aware that they will need to work at different times of the day and also at weekends to ensure that all forms are distributed and collected in person."

"Applications for the positions open on the 4th of January and close on the 11th of January. The period of work is 10 weeks from the 8th of March to the 13th of May to allow for the distribution and collection for forms. The minimum of 22 hours a week are flexible and will mainly be worked in the evenings and at weekends."

"Anyone interested should be confident knocking on the doors of those they do not know and speaking to people. They should also have a good sense of direction and be able to handle large amounts of paperwork."

"Those interested in applying for the position of census enumerator should look at the website, where pre-registration for interest in the positions and more information can be found."

"The census is a vital piece of information. It allows Governments to plan in advance for services and to direct resources where they are needed. Census enumerators perform a vital role and I am hopeful that there will be considerable interest in the positions in Kildare," concluded Minister Brady.
