The Central Statistics Office (CSO) is undertaking a massive recruitment drive for almost 500 people as part of the 2022 Census.

The major population survey was meant to be held this April, but the pandemic has pushed it back to next year.

As part of the process managers, field supervisors and enumerators all need to be found.

Eileen Murphy, head of administration at the CSO, told Newstalk Breakfast this is a big operation.

"The Census is the largest survey in the country and it normally happens every five years.

"Obviously it should have happened this year in April, but due to COVID it got postponed to next year: the 3rd of April 2022.

"Along with the dedicated team in the Central Statistics Office, we need a large field force to help us run this census.

"We already recruited our senior managers, who are starting work in the next few weeks, and now we're looking for find some census field supervisors who will start work in January.

"We need about 466 of them all around the country, they'll be based from home, we need them in urban areas and in rural areas."

They are also looking for Irish speakers as part of the recruitment drive.

And Eileen says the application process can be done entirely online.

"You can only apply online: you apply on censusrecruitment.cso.ie - and we've information booklets up there with all the details of the roles.

"The money is €564 a week, plus allowances".

But she says it is a full-time position, for any Breakfast presenters thinking of double-jobbing.

"This one is a full-time role.

"In the early part of the role it's mainly sort of office hours, but then during the live field operation - which is a 10-week operation - the enumerators will be going from the field at evenings and weekends, and you'll be managing those enumerators.

"So there will be work at different hours of the days at that time.

"But we will be coming looking for enumerators then in November as well".
