The 2020 census is actively recruiting job candidates in Spokane County.

More than 100 temporary workers will be hired to work on the census in Eastern Washington. The jobs will begin this summer, said Donald Bendz, a Census Bureau spokesman.

The Census Bureau is advertising positions in four categories: office clerks, census takers, office supervisors and census field supervisors. The positions are advertised at pay rates of $14.50 to $16 per hour, with mileage for field positions.

To apply, individuals must be U.S. citizens, at least 18 years old with a Social Security number. If offered a job, candidates must be able to pass a criminal background check and work flexible hours, including evenings and weekends.

Most jobs require access to a vehicle and a valid driver’s license, unless public transportation is available.

To apply online visit www.2020census.gov/jobs . For help with the application, call (855) 562-2020 or use the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339 for TTY-ASCII.
