Su­per­vi­sors sought for 2016 census

Pilbara News - - News -

The call has gone out for lo­cals with peo­ple skills to sign up to help the Aus­tralian Bureau of Sta­tis­tics man­age census op­er­a­tions across the State.

Up to 253 area su­per­vi­sors are needed for the 2016 Census of Pop­u­la­tion and Hous­ing, to take place on Au­gust 9 this year.

Western Aus­tralia Census di­rec­tor David Way­mouth said the census pro­vided an im­por­tant sta­tis­ti­cal snap­shot of the na­tion.

“Each area su­per­vi­sor will re­cruit, train, lead and su­per­vise a team of up to 12 field of­fi­cers who will visit homes to sup­port peo­ple com­plet­ing the census. They will also qual­ity check de­liv­ery and col­lec­tion ac­tiv­i­ties, pro­tect data se­cu­rity and en­sure the health and safety of their teams.”

Su­per­vi­sors would earn close to $35 an hour, work­ing flex­i­ble hours for up to five months.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close on Fe­bru­ary 21 and can be viewed at abs.gov.au/ca­reers.
