Thousands of jobs available for the NSW State election 23 March 2019

The NSW Electoral Commission is seeking 10,000 staff to fill a range of jobs at the 2019 State election on 23 March this year.

A total of 20,000 paid roles are being recruited, either for election day or up to eight weeks for some administrative jobs.

NSW Electoral Commissioner John Schmidt is encouraging people to apply at elections.nsw.gov.au.  

“You don’t need experience to apply and we provide all necessary training,” he said.

“We are seeking people who are team players, good communicators and enjoy working in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.” 

Mr Schmidt said there were vacancies state-wide for all types of roles. 

“There are some electoral districts where we are particularly short of staff and keen to hear from local applicants,” he said.

These electoral districts and suburbs include: 

  • Lakemba - Riverwood, Punchbowl and Lakemba
  • Holsworthy - Chipping Norton and Moorebank
  • Prospect - Bossley Park and Pemulwuy
  • Riverstone - Glenwood and Riverstone
  • Davidson - St Ives, Gordon and Roseville
  • Swansea - Belmont and Swansea
  • Wallsend - Wallsend and Cardiff
  • Macquarie Fields - Ingleburn and Macquarie Fields
  • Seven Hills - Wentworthville and Seven Hills.

To work at the election, you need to be enrolled to vote.

“Delivering democracy is worthy work and provides people with transferable skills as well as income,” Mr Schmidt said.  

“We particularly encourage younger people to apply and anyone who speaks languages in addition to English.”
