We are always looking to recruit staff to assist at election time. The posts available include:

Working at Annual Canvass

Every year between August and November, Councils throughout the country undertake their annual canvass. This work is vital to enable Electoral Registration Officers to update the Registers in time for meeting the statutory publication date of 1st December.

The annual canvass involves employing canvassers to go knocking doors within a defined area to obtain information required.
