The ABS is looking for more Census Collectors for Weston Creek to help conduct the Census on 9 August 2011. The ABS is looking for people from all backgrounds who are community minded and can connect and communicate with householders to undertake the Census. Data collected in the Census supports planning, decision making and funding at all levels of Government and is fundamental to the local services and facilities we use every day.
Collectors undertake the delivery and collection of Census forms from all houses in their allocated area and help householders complete the forms where necessary. Collectors must work from home, use their own telephone or mobile phone for Census purposes and have a car that can be securely locked. The must also provide secure storage in their home for up to 6 packs of Census material (less than 1 cubic metre).
Collectors need to be available from 1 July to 8 September 2011. During the peak collection and delivery phase, Collectors must work on weekends including evenings up to 9 pm. Collectors earn around $18 an hour and could expect to earn a total of between $1,300 and $2,800 depending on the size of their allocated area. Travelling, incidental and motor vehicle allowances are also paid.
Applications are now open until 12 May. Apply online at www.abs.gov.au/census or call 1800 420 182. Further information about the census is available from Stephen Collett (ACT Regional Director) on o2 6252 8921 or Tim Power (ACT Census District Manager) on 02 6252 8922.
