Interested in becoming a canvasser?

As part of our annual canvass, we must contact every property in the District to find out if there are any changes to the household. This means we can remove the details of those no longer living there and invite new occupants to register individually. We do this by sending a letter to every household.

Between September and November, we employ canvassers to visit properties that haven’t responded to this letter.

Canvassers are allocated to a specific area of the district to work in. We currently have vacancies across the district. 

To be right for this role you will need to:

  • Be honest and trustworthy.
  • Have good communication skills and be able to communicate with customers in a calm, polite, patient and tactful manner.
  • Be able to work in a politically neutral manner.
  • Adhere to strict guidance regarding handling and storing of personal data and confidentiality.
