It's run by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. The information we collect is used to make decisions that affect everyone - things like how many schools, surgeries and hospitals we need. To help us, we need a large field team to encourage everyone in their area to take part. The team meet people from all walks of life, gain valuable experience and play a part in improving their community's future. The role Do you have experience managing teams? Are you willing to travel? Given the unique nature of the census, we need mobile team leaders who are willing to work anywhere across England or Wales as the need arises. You will manage a team of census officers and travel with them wherever additional resources are needed. There may be times when you will need to stay in overnight accommodation, which will be arranged for you. You will induct your officers as and when they join the team and, once they're settled in, you will motivate and guide them through the different phases of the census. Your team works remotely, so you must encourage and motivate them through regular contact, calls and team meetings. You will also deal with and escalate any issues that might come up. To help, you will have the support of a wider group of team leaders, an area manager on hand for advice, as well as the support of a census staff helpdesk and online help should you need it. About you As an experienced manager, you are well organised and make fair, effective decisions on time. Professionalism, confidence and resilience all matter. You will use your initiative, think independently and remain calm - even in challenging situations. You will need space at home you can use as an office and be able to travel throughout England and Wales with no less than 24 hours' notice. You must be prepared to stay overnight or longer as required. We will assist you in arranging accommodation where necessary, and cover your expenses. You will also need to be able to travel to, and around, your assigned areas, so you will need a current full UK driving licence and use of a motor vehicle (insured for business use) for which you will be paid a mileage allowance. People make the census. If you are a supportive, motivational team leader who is interested in making Census 2021 a success for everyone, apply for a census mobile team leader role.
