AWF Madison Group Limited (NZX:AWF) announces that Statistics NZ has contracted with its subsidiary Madison Recruitment (Madison) who will be supported by its other subsidiary AWF, as the preferred supplier of Census Recruitment and Associated Services for the 2018 Census.

This major project will involve the recruitment of between 3,500 and 4,000 staff throughout New Zealand who will be responsible for all Census activities – address verification, canvassing, field operations, data processing and post enumeration surveys.
Simon Bennett, CEO of AWF said: “Our success in winning this major contract is a huge vote of confidence in our capability and the geographic reach of the AWF Madison Group”.
