I worked at Office for National Statistics as a contractor (Less than a year)
This particular role actually meant spending a good deal of time outside, which was great. Other staff very competent and friendly.
Occasionally some members of the public did refuse to be interviewed, which was unhelpful and slightly awkward. A few colleagues encountered some quite rude people, although this was quite rare and I personally didn't experience this.
Advice to Management
Possibly the pay could be improved, aside from that a nice job, particularly for students or those with other commitments.

The data input was simple but the role play was made deliberately hazardous, which in retrospect was a good idea as the job involves some tenacity in dealing with difficult members of the public. Lasted 2.5 - 3 hours.
