Census Brings Local Jobs

If you missed out earlier this year, there’s still time to learn about Census 2011 jobs available in Moreton Bay region.

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Allan Sutherland said council was partnering with the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to present a second series of workshops this April to explain the Census positions and how to apply for them.

“Census will provide part-time work between July 1 and September 8, so it’s an ideal opportunity for those wanting to broaden their skills and earn some money close to home,” Mayor Sutherland said.

The Census, conducted once every five years, aims to accurately count the number of people in Australia, their key characteristics, and the dwellings in which they live.

In Moreton Bay region the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will employ more than 400 collectors who will be responsible for delivering and collecting forms from dwellings in specified areas.

Collectors will be paid between $1,100 and $2,300 for the part-time position, depending on their workload.
