Census Bureau hiring local office managers in Flagstaff

The U.S. Census Bureau's Denver Regional Census Center recently announced that it is currently recruiting managers for a local census office in Flagstaff, which will be the hub of local census activity for northern Arizona and the Navajo Nation for early operations in 2009 that support the upcoming 2010 Census. The Flagstaff Local Census Office (LCO) is scheduled to open on Oct. 1.

"By September, we hope to hire qualified and skilled managers who are familiar with the local culture in Flagstaff," said Cathy Illian, director of the Census Bureau's Denver Regional Census Center. "These positions offer competitive wages and the opportunity to help your community obtain an accurate count in 2010."

The Flagstaff office, one of the 150 Local Census Offices opening now across the nation and Puerto Rico, will conduct address canvassing in early 2009 to update and verify the Census Bureau's address list. Additional offices will be opening in the fall of 2009, including additional office in Window Rock.

LCO managers will oversee activities such as recruiting and training, updating address lists, collecting data from area residents and working with local officials to ensure an accurate count.

The positions available include: local census office manager; assistant manager for field operations; assistant manager for recruiting; assistant manager for quality assurance; assistant manager for administration; and assistant manager for technology.
