Cen­sus col­lec­tors wanted

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

The 2013 Cen­sus is now just three months away and Statis­tics New Zealand needs around 7000 cen­sus col­lec­tors to work in ev­ery part of the coun­try in­clud­ing in Mata­mata.

‘‘ Cen­sus col­lec­tors will visit ev­ery home and dwelling in New Zealand lead­ing up to cen­sus day Tues­day, 5 March 2013,’’ gen­eral man­ager 2013 Cen­sus Carol Slap­pen­del said.

The col­lec­tors will de­liver In­ter­net Ac­cess Codes and pa­per forms to 1.8 mil­lion homes and dwellings.

‘‘The com­bi­na­tion of cen­sus col­lec­tors go­ing door to door and the fact that peo­ple will also have the op­tion of com­plet­ing forms on­line means we are mak­ing it as easy as pos­si­ble for ev­ery­one in New Zealand to be counted on cen­sus day,’’ Ms Slap­pen­del said.

‘‘From the very tip of the North Is­land, to Ste­wart Is­land and the Chatham Is­lands we need cen­sus col- lec­tors. We need col­lec­tors to go to hos­pi­tals, homes, air­ports – even cruise ships will have forms de­liv­ered to them,’’ she said

‘‘It’s a huge chal­lenge, but it’s also an ex­tremely re­ward­ing role and col­lec­tors are well sup­ported by an ex­pe­ri­enced team.

‘‘ The job in­volves part­time paid work dur­ing a six week pe­riod from Fe­bru­ary 11 to March 24 2013.’’

Cen­sus col­lec­tors work from home.
