Mana Recruitment, PERSOLKELLY, and Stats NZ are all working together to source Team Leaders and Census Field Collectors to prepare us for the 2023 Census. We are running a Census Test between February and April 2022, to trial various aspects of the Census and to prepare us all for the big one in 2023.

Census Test

We are still recruiting Census Collector roles for the Census Test, in Auckland, Tauranga and Bay of Plenty.  The information and knowledge gathered from this test will be used to refine how we run the next census to maximise response rates, improve data quality, and ensure everyone in New Zealand can see themselves in the data. If you reside in or are close to any of these areas we would love to hear from you.
