Work in one of our offices
People know us for conducting the Census and Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey, but we do so much more. You can work in a range of challenging and rewarding office based permanent and temporary roles to drive real change. We collect information from tens of thousands of Australian households and businesses about all aspects of life to better understand our population and future needs.
Our people play an important role in setting and promoting best practice statistical standards to help unlock the potential of Australia’s public data.
Results from our surveys are used by all levels of government, industry and community groups to make important decisions, such as how public funds are spent, and where services are needed. These decisions directly affect you, your family and the people you know.
The variety of roles we offer include collecting, analysing and disseminating data, supporting the business in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), finance, human resources, customer services, and the list goes on.
Our offices are located in all capital cities as well as Geelong and Dandenong.
See our ABS Enterprise Agreement for more information regarding pay rates and conditions.
