We’re hiring thousands of people like you in a range of exciting temporary roles to make Census 2021 a success.

The census is a survey about all of us. We need your help and enthusiasm to encourage everyone in England and Wales to participate.

The census gives us a picture of communities, which helps to plan and fund public services in your 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.

Whether you’re saving up for something or you want to make a real difference to your community, there’s a job for you.

People make the census.
