National Census creates jobs in Welwyn Hatfield and Hertsmere

MORE than 100 full and part time temporary jobs are being created in Times Territory ahead of next year’s national Census.

The 2011 Census is taking place on March 27, and the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has launched a national recruitment campaign to fill 35,000 jobs across England and Wales, including 65 positions in Welwyn Hatfield and 60 in Hertsmere.

Available roles include census coordinators, who will help to manage local teams, census collectors, who will provide support on the doorstep and special enumerators, who will be responsible for communal housing including care homes, hotels and student halls of residence.

There will be a rolling recruitment process with different closing dates for different roles – details can be found on the jobs website.

Alan Mordey, ONS Area Manager Welwyn Hatfield, said: “The 2011 Census is less than six months away. We need to give people help and support to complete and return the census questionnaire and this means recruiting the right people for this important nationwide project.”
