The CSO is looking to hire more than 5,000 people to help with Census 2022.
The enumerators will be tasked with delivering and collecting a total of 2.2 million forms from every home in the country.
Anyone hired will work on a ten-week basis, between late February and early May next year, and earn around €3,200 gross.
The upcoming Census was due to take place this year, but got delayed due to the pandemic.
It's now set for April 3rd next year.
Head of Census administration, Eileen Murphy, says they're accepting enumerator applications from nine this morning.
Speaking on Breakfast Briefing, she said: "Enumerators are a key role in any census - they are the public faces.
"We need 5,100 of them, all over the country. They'll be given responsibility for what we can an enumeration area - they'll be responsible for around 400 homes in their area."
Those hired will need to deliver census forms four or five weeks before census night, and then collect the completed forms afterwards.
Eileen said: "We have lots of people who love doing this role, and return time after time.
"It's a ten-week contract, it's part-time, and you'd be working approximately 22 hours a week. [The hours] can largely be what suits you.
"You find out lots about your local area, and there's also I think a feeling of pride that you've played a small part in history. We've been taking censuses in Ireland since 1821."
Applicants need to be over 18, and Eileen says they're looking for people from all backgrounds who can communicate with people and are self-motivated.
She added: "If you're a student that has a few hours... if you're recently retired... if you're thinking of getting back into the workforce... this is a great job for you."
Applications for the roles are now open on the census website and stay open until December 3rd.
It comes after the CSO undertook a recruitment drive for almost 500 supervisors earlier this year.
