Census 2021 recruitment has started - do you want to get involved?
The census gives us a picture of communities, which helps to plan and fund public services in our area. Nothing else gives so much detail about the society in which we live, helping to make decisions with the potential to transform lives for the better.
The census is a survey about all of us. Your help and enthusiasm is needed to encourage everyone in England and Wales to participate. Which is why thousands of people are being hired for a range of exciting temporary roles to make Census 2021 a success.

Information about the roles
Census engagement managers and community advisers
As part of our phased approach to Census 2021 recruitment for field staff, our first vacancies for Census Engagement Managers (CEMs) begins on 7 July. We’ve recently written to all local authorities to let them know about the CEMs in their area including a job description for this role. We’ll shortly be sending out links to the online recruitment for these posts. We’ll write out again in July to share the job descriptions and locations of the census community advisers.
As a reminder a brief description of these roles are below:
Census Engagement Managers will work with the local authority and engage with community leaders to promote the benefit of the census and gain their support for it. They will develop a partnership working plan with the local authority that will contain details of agreed activities and support for the census operation.
Community Advisers will engage with specific communities that have been identified as needing extra support and encouragement to understand the benefit of the census to encourage completion of the census questionnaire.
