The Census 2022 Senior Manager recruitment competition is now closed.

However, due to the geographical spread of the Senior Management positions available, there may be a need to re-open the competition in a small number of specific locations in the coming days.  In this event, these areas and application details will be published here. Thank you for your interest in the census.

Applicants will be notified when the results of shortlisting are available.  It is hoped that interviews for applicants successful in the shortlisting process will take place in mid-June.
