137 Census Enumerators are to be hired in Clare next year.

Nationally, the Central Statistics Office (CSO) is to recruit for 5,100 positions with 137 of them to deliver and collect census forms from every home in Co Clare.

Enumerators can earn up to €3,200 for working 10 weeks part-time, between 28 February and 6 May 2022. An online application process opens on November 25th at www.census.ie.

Census 2022 will take place on Sunday, 3 April next year. The results from the Census are vital to planning the future of public services in Clare and across the country. To deliver a successful Census the team of 137 enumerators will be required to deliver and collect census forms to approximately 43,000 households across the county.

Speaking about the role of a Census Enumerator, Eileen Murphy, Head of Census Administration said “A Census Enumerator is a job that really counts. Those who undertake this rewarding position will be providing a valuable service to the people of Clare, by ensuring future policy decisions are made based on their community’s needs.

“The job of Census Enumerator is highly flexible, so a perfect option for many people not in a position to commit to full time work. Over the ten weeks enumerators will work approximately 22 hours per week and can largely pick their own hours. Each enumerator is responsible for the delivery and collection of around 400 census forms in their local area.”

According to Eileen Murphy the role of Census Enumerator is best suited to a people person who enjoys meeting and engaging with new people. “It is important that you can work well on your own. The job does require some persistence, as you may need to visit some homes multiple times to secure a response. Good weather in Spring in Ireland is not guaranteed, so you need to be ready for working outdoors in all weathers”.

The application process is expected to remain open until 3 December. However early applications are recommended as the CSO will cease taking applications once they have reached the required number.
