Staff wanted for the Annual Canvass 2022
• Do you provide excellent customer service?
• Are you a well organised and motivated individual?
• Are you looking to earn some extra money before Christmas?
If the answer is yes to the above, then the elections team want to hear from you!
We are recruiting canvassers to undertake a telephone canvass and make subsequent visits to any properties in an allocated area where a household has not responded to the Canvass Form or subsequent reminders. The purpose of this visit or telephone call will be to encourage the occupant to complete the Canvass Form to know which residents who are eligible should be registered at the address. Additionally, canvassers will be required to visit properties where an Invitation to Register is also outstanding for any elector within their allocated designated area. We anticipate the designated canvasser property area to be between 250-300 properties.
Canvassers are required to complete the canvassing activity within the period from the 6 October to 28 November and should undertake a minimum of two visits to each property where necessary. Canvassers must be able to work during evening and weekends for the whole duration of 8 weeks and regularly visit the office to drop off completed forms.
Canvassers must attend a mandatory training session and will be paid on performance on a sliding scale depending on the percentage of completed forms returned (currently under review – please email us for more information). Additionally, canvassers will also be paid 0.45p per mile, 0.45p per initial form as an admin fee and a £20 training fee.
If you have done the canvass previously, are interested in this role please see Person Specification, Job Description and Application Form below. Please send the completed Application Form to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 28 July 2022.
