Census 2021: When is it, and how to apply for a job

Every 10 years, the Census survey captures information about people living in England and Wales.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) captures the data and uses it to help local authorities, charities and other organisations deliver their services properly.

It also paints a clear picture of who lives here, each different household – asking about everything from age to relationship status.

The 2021 Census is fast approaching. So, when is it exactly, and how can you get involved?

When is Census Day 2021?

The Census will take place on Sunday, March 21 2021. This applies to England and Wales only.

Northern Ireland will also have a Census in 2021, though the exact date has yet to be announced.

Scotland’s Census will happen sometime in 2022.

The first-ever Census took place in 1801, 220 years ago.

Do you have to complete the Census?

Yes, the Census Act 1920 makes it compulsory for everyone in England and Wales to take part in the census.

The Act makes answering the questions mandatory. 

Repeated failure to complete it could result in a fine of up to £1,000.

How can you apply for a job with Census?

To get the Census to everyone, the ONS needs to hire at least 30,000 extra field staff.

There are a number of temporary roles to apply for, including:

  • Assistant work
  • Knocking on doors, speaking to your local community and collecting surveys
  • Interviewing people
  • Dealing with non-compliance (people who won’t fill in the survey)
  • Supervising and managing the survey in local areas.

Roles currently advertised offer temporary work through early March to late April.

To register your interest or apply for a specific role, head to Census Jobs.
