Census 2022 will take place on Sunday, April 3 next year. The results from the Census are vital to planning the future of public services in Kerry and across the country.

To deliver a successful Census the team of 189 enumerators will be required to deliver and collect census forms to approximately 54,000 households across the county.

Speaking about the role of a Census Enumerator, Eileen Murphy, Head of Census Administration said; “The job of Census Enumerator is highly flexible, so a perfect option for many people not in a position to commit to full time work. Over the ten weeks enumerators will work approximately 22 hours per week and can largely pick their own hours. Each enumerator is responsible for the delivery and collection of around 400 census forms in their local area.”

According to Eileen Murphy the role of Census Enumerator is best suited to a people person who enjoys meeting and engaging with new people.

“It is important that you can work well on your own.  The job does require some persistence, as you may need to visit some homes multiple times to secure a response. Good weather in Spring in Ireland is not guaranteed, so you need to be ready for working outdoors in all weathers.”

The application process is expected to remain open until December 3. However, early applications are recommended as the CSO will cease taking applications once they have reached the required number.
