OVER 19,000 temporary jobs are on offer in Queensland as the Australian Electoral Commission searches for election workers across both the Kennedy and Leichhardt electorates ahead of the 21 May federal poll. 

Temporary election work is paid and no prior experience is required, with the commission providing all the training and support needed. 

There are currently 819 temporary jobs available in the Kennedy electorate and 748 jobs in Leichhardt. Australian Electoral Commission state manager for Queensland Stephanie Attard said working in an election was a great way to earn extra money and contribute to your local community.

 “We have got over 19,100 temporary election jobs in Queensland and there are over 100,000 temporary positions throughout Australia,” she said. “We want to have people working at polling places who reflect our diverse population, so we welcome registrations of interest from everyone. “While most of the jobs are on election day itself, some are in the few weeks before and after election day.”
