Census Jobs Available
Area Manager jobs available with the 2011 Census
by AVBC on Friday 26 March 2010

The 2011 Census is fast approaching and on behalf of the Office for National Statistics (ONS), Capita is starting to recruit for Area Managers around England and Wales to help it run smoothly. To find out more and apply, visit

What does the role involve?

Area Managers will be responsible for managing and co-ordinating the census operation in an area averaging 500,000 people. Their primary focus will be to ensure the maximum number of people return their census questionnaires. They will need to establish links with local authorities and community groups and engage with specific target populations. He or she will be the primary contact for all local media enquiries in their area and will act as local media census spokesperson, when appropriate. Media handling training will be provided. Area Managers will also be responsible for managing and monitoring a team of up to 15 Census Co-ordinators who in turn manage teams of up to 15 field staff.

The role will run from 2 August 2010 until 10 June 2011.

What is the census?

In England and Wales the census is planned and carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). A census in England and Wales is run every ten years. Every household is asked to complete a census questionnaire. This information is used by ONS to provide population estimates which government, local authorities and other organisations use to fund, plan and deliver public services such as healthcare, education, housing and transport.

You can also register your interest for jobs that will be available later in the year:

Census Co-ordinators to lead and motivate teams, and Census Distributors, Collectors and Special Enumerators to knock on doors, collect questionnaires and offer help and advice on completing them. We will also be recruiting Census Coverage Survey and Non Compliance staff in early 2011.
