Are you interested in:

  • Earning some extra money?

Job Title:  Electoral Registration Canvasser                 

Duration: Temporary for up to 4 months  

Hours: No fixed hours

Salary:Initial delivery fee paid at 30p (rural area) or 25p (urban area) per form.  Visit fee paid at £15 per hour.  Fees vary depending on location and size of area

Locations: Wisbech, Gorefield, Manea and Stonea

There are two main parts to the canvasser role both of which must be undertaken and completed in full for payment to be made.

The first part is for the canvasser to deliver by hand the initial electoral registration forms to properties in the area allocated, from the 30 July to 14 August 2022. The second part is to then visit the properties that have failed to complete and respond to the initial electoral registration request and collect and complete registration forms with local residents from 8 October to 6 November 2022.

We are ideally looking to recruit people who are experienced in working with the general public, have great interpersonal skills, understand the importance of collecting data in an accurate and confidential manner and have detailed local knowledge of the area in which they are applying to work.  There is a physical element to the role as it involves door to door deliveries over long distances.  All training will be provided; the majority of visits will be most effective during evenings and weekends, meaning it can fit in with other commitments.

Please note this post is politically restricted.


The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Friday 8 July 2022.
