Keen to take a poll position? Jobs available for local council elections

THE local government elections in September will bring with them a range of work opportunities for people seeking casual employment.

NSW Electoral Commission election support services director Wayne Morgan said around 30,000 people will be employed across the state in a range of positions, both on the day and in the lead-up to the ballot.

"We need enthusiastic people with excellent customer service skills," Mr Morgan said.

"There are a range of jobs available and you may be marking names off the electoral roll, managing an entire polling place or being a ballot box guard.

"All staff complete training, form part of a larger team working together to deliver the election and are paid at a competitive rate."

Interested applicants can submit an expression of interest at the NSW Electoral Commission website (www.elections.nsw.gov.au).
