About the job

Summary

Have you got the qualities that we are looking for? 

  • Are you outgoing and confident? 
  • Are you independent and like managing your own work? 
  • Do you enjoy meeting and talking to people? 
  • Are you interested in finding out about people’s lives? 
  • Are you a good listener as well as a good communicator? 
  • Are you self-motivated and organised? 

By joining the Office for National Statistics (ONS) as a Civil Servant carrying out official surveys you will be helping to inform Parliament about the state of the nation. 

ONS is the UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics and the recognised national statistical institute of the UK. 

We are responsible for collecting and publishing statistics related to the economy, population and society at national and local levels. Our range of economic, social and population statistics are published in over 600 releases a year. 

The data you collect will be invaluable to so many people in our country including the government and its agencies, citizens, charities, businesses, scholars and students. 

Charities, for example, use ONS statistics to gather background information to enable them to improve the lives of people by understanding how they need to target and tailor their services. 

We are accountable through the UK Statistics Authority to Parliament and the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and are therefore independent of Government Ministers.

Job description

National rate: £11,175 to £15,239 per annum. 

Outer London rate: £12,373 to £16,872 per annum. 

Please note that the Outer London pay rate quoted applies only to applicants living between 10 and 20 miles radius of WC2 5HS.
