Job centres across the UK are actively supporting ‘The Adecco Group’ with the Census 2021 high-volume recruitment campaign. Collectively we aim to promote inclusion across all community groups and ensure a diverse workforce is in place for the census.
This presents an exciting opportunity for candidates to be involved in the first ‘digital census’ in history. A wide range of temporary part-time and full-time roles will be available offering contractual periods between a couple of weeks to several months. Candidates can apply for officer (those working in the field), supervisory or managerial roles (subject to individual experience).
Adecco/ONS are working hard to ensure they are taking every necessary step and precaution to ensure the well-being of both staff and candidates, in light of COVID-19.
We are now rapidly approaching the recruitment ‘Go Live’ date which is only 4 weeks away (6th July 2020)! All adverts will be accessible on the microsite which is: www.censusjobs.co.uk
Using the same link there is also currently a platform for candidates to ‘Register’ their interest ahead of this date and for them to find out more information, including the story so far and how the Census has changed since 2011.
ONS (the end employer) requires all successful candidates to be civil servants for the duration of the contract, therefore all candidates must satisfy the Home Office and Civil Service guidelines. The ‘.gov.uk’ website contains further information (if required): https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/nationality-rules.
To extend the engagement and attract as many applicants as possible, we’d appreciate if your organisation can support with sharing the link amongst your network.
Please let us know should you have any queries and we thank you for your collaborative support in advance.
