The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and provides a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales.
The census gives 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.
Over the forthcoming months The Office of National Statistics will be hiring thousands of people in a range of exciting temporary roles to make Census 2021 a success.
If you’re a people person, have great customer service skills and want to be part of something that affects all of us, then apply for a job with the census.
