The role of a census enumerator is best suited to a people person who enjoys meeting new people.

Some 201 Census Enumerators are required to deliver and collect census forms to and from every home in Kildare next year, according The Central Statistics Office (CSO).

Enumerators can earn up to €3,200 for working 10 weeks part-time, between 28 February and 6 May 2022.

The online application process will open on the 25 November at www.census.ie

The Census 2022 will take place on Sunday, 3 April next year.

To deliver a successful Census the team of 201 enumerators will be required to deliver and collect census forms to approximately 73,000 households across the county.

The results from the Census are vital to planning the future of public services in Kildare and across the country.

Census Enumerator, Eileen Murphy, Head of Census Administration commented: "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."

“Those who undertake this rewarding position will be providing a valuable service to the people of Kildare, by ensuring future policy decisions are made based on their community's needs,” she said.

Murphy has said 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,” she added.

The application process is expected to remain open until 3 December.

However, the CSO has said early applications are recommended as it will cease taking applications once they have reached the required number.
