Full Job Description
About the Census
The Census is held every five years and is one of the largest and most important collections undertaken by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The Census counts the number of people in Australia and includes data on where we live, age, culture, religion, income, education, living and housing arrangements. The information is used to make important decisions, such as government funding, input into policy-making and electoral boundaries. The next Census will be Tuesday 10 August 2021. Remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities will be counted in July and August.

Community Field Officers will help everyone in their community to complete their Census. They will drop-off and pick-up Census forms, visit households and assist with interviews to help people complete their Census form, and complete paperwork daily. Community Field Officer roles in remote areas are divided into two positions:

Interviewer (CFO-I): will carry out interviews with households and follow up forms or provide general support. They will provide support through sharing their local knowledge and advice on places where people may be living in their community. They will be responsible for completing all interviews for all households assigned to them and keep Census forms and material safe. CFO-Interviewers will take part in training and may attend debriefing sessions in the community, if required

Facilitator (CFO-F): acts as a conduit between the Remote Areas Management Team (RAMT) and the community if the RAMT is not from the community. Their main role is to provide support in nominated communities during the Census count. This includes working with their team leader to ensure everyone in the community is counted, ensure that people know the importance of answering Census questions correctly, helping people fill in their Census form and help the team work through problem encountered whilst interviewing households. They will provide support for establishing and maintaining ABS and Community relationships. They will provide community specific information through sharing their local knowledge and advice. CFO-Facilitators will take part in training and debriefing sessions in the community, and provide input into an evaluation report, if required.
