While this level of interest is fantastic we need to turn these expressions of interests into actual applications. We need 5,000 enumerators who are geographically spread across the country in order to complete the Census on Sunday 10th April 2011.“Enumerators are a vitally important part of the census process. We have found, for the most part, that enumerators find it a very rewarding experience and many have done more than one Census. Given the extensive contact that they have with the public, it is important that enumerators have patience, tact and consideration. They must also be able to read maps and understand detailed instructions. It can be helpful if they have some survey, market research or practical social work experience, but this is not essential”.If you are interested in becoming an enumerator for Census 2011 then please apply at www.census.ie.
