Hundreds of casual staff are needed by the NSW Electoral Commission across the South Coast for a range of jobs in the upcoming state election.

The election will be held on March 23 and thousands of paid roles are being recruited across the state for employment on election day.

Election officials start at 7.15am and work until the ballot paper count is completed. They provide customer service, mark electors off the authorised roll, and help sort and count ballot papers.

Payment ranges from $399 to $925 for election day roles.

A spokesman from the NSW Electoral Commission said no experience was necessary and all training would be provided.

The NSW Electoral Commission is looking for casual staff across the following electorates:

  • South Coast: 181 positions across 28 voting centres and two early voting centres;
  • Kiama: 172 staff across across 25 voting centres and four early voting centres;
  • Bega: 175 staff across 35 voting centres and five early voting centres.
