job description

Keyboard Operator/Data Entry Staff

Randstad have partnered up with The Western Australian Electoral Commission to support their recruitment needs for the March 2021 election. There are a wide range of casual roles and opportunities to work before and after the Election Day.

Keyboard/data entry staff assist in the processing of declaration votes or the inputting of vote data or count results. To do this they will make regular use of a computer to check the enrolment of a declaration voter on the electronic roll or enter data into a Commission application. These roles involve some degree of system checking and decision-making. A small number of staff employed at this level may also assist the Returning Officer at the fresh scrutiny which would include the input of any revised results data.

Dates: Starting times and duration vary across functional areas; commencing from February and extend through to early April 2021

Selection Requirements:

  • Sound computer literacy and high-level keyboard skills (around 10,000 keystrokes/hr) combined with the ability to quickly learn new database applications; accuracy is more important than speed, although both desirable. Training in the system will be provided. Staff with previous experience preferred.
  • An ability to identify, from on screen data, any areas requiring further investigation
  • Methodical or orderly manner of processing and must be accurate and timely worker.
  • Able to work under pressure to meet deadlines either in a small and large team environment.
  • Able to focus on work and not engage with stakeholders when directed
  • Be willing to complete data entry skill testing

This role requires strict political neutrality. Any person who is, and is seen to be, active in political affairs, and intends to carry on this activity publicly, cannot be considered for these positions.

To apply, please submit your resume using the relevant link. Due to the volume of expected applications, all application should be submitted online and only successful candidates will be contacted. If you are successful in being shortlisted, information regarding the next steps will be sent to you via email.
