Community jobs for engagement professionals

The census is a once-a-decade survey of the entire population of England and Wales. It’s carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and provides accurate statistics that influence the future of us all.

The data we collect provides an incredibly detailed picture of our society. It’s used to make decisions that affect everyone – things like how many schools, surgeries and hospitals we need.

The role

Are you ready for a hands-on role leading community engagement for Census 2021? We’re now hiring census engagement managers to raise awareness and get everyone involved.

Working with other census staff, and building support from local authorities, charities, and faith and community leaders, you’ll lead the development of a community engagement plan which inspires everyone to complete the census questionnaire.

You’ll use your engagement experience to develop relationships and ensure relevant, timely messages are heard by the right groups at the right time. Acting as an ambassador for Census 2021, you’ll be just as comfortable getting out and about to spread the word as you are devising your plan.

Depending on where you’re based, you might also be asked to manage one or more community advisers, who support specific groups within the community.

About you

As an organised engagement professional, you’re great at outreach and developing relationships, and can lead on planning, negotiation and decision-making.

You might have worked for a charity or local authority previously, been a volunteer, or maybe run your own business. Whatever your background, you’ll have successfully worked in engagement or outreach before.

Resilience, communication skills, and a collaborative, can-do attitude matter. If you’re great at building relationships and growing your network, this could be the job for you.
