THE 2011 CENSUS

Each Census provides information to help Government make decisions that will affect Public Services, and the next one takes place on 27th March 2011.

It is vital that every area is properly represented to ensure that your Community gets the appropriate funding and support to provide local services.

  Recruiting is taking place for a number of roles to support the Census.

The jobs available would be ideal for retired or semi retired people, students
or anyone looking for a short term income boost.
Check out the recruitment site for more detail on www.censusjobs.co.uk
