Canvassers

We are currently recruiting casual paid workers for the annual voter registration canvass. To help to compile the electoral register we deliver a household enquiry form to every residential property in the borough. We will then door-knock on the properties that have not sent their form back.

We need to recruit staff to undertake the door knocking stage, which will take place between 16 September and 17 October 2022. Door knocking is carried out mainly in the evenings and at weekends to maximise resident availability.

You must have the skills to be able to visit people and help them give the information we need. Pay is performance related. Canvassers are paid £0.50 for each initial visit to a property and £2 for each completed form or registration. Full training and support is provided.

If you are interested in undertaking this work then please contact us at electoral.services@merton.gov.uk for information on how to apply.
