Canvasser Job Description

A canvasser is someone who solicits support for a social cause or political candidate typically door to door.

The canvasser’s job is typically to identify potential supporters or sympathizers of a particular cause or candidate and approach them for donations.

Canvassers can also work with candidates or political organizations before an election to help collect contributions for party or candidate coffers.

Canvassers typically work indoors and outdoors, with inclement weather often an issue.

Sometimes canvassers must be able to work in extreme hot or cold conditions.
