We recruit staff to carry out survey and analysis work. This includes traffic or pedestrian counts and bus surveys. Employment is on a casual basis for intermittent or short-term survey work. Occasionally surveys can last several weeks. Our surveys are normally carried out in East Sussex and Brighton.

The number and type of survey vary from year to year. If you register interest, we keep your name on the list of people willing to carry out surveys. This does not guarantee employment.
