Payroll and Pensions


Monthly paid staff are paid by bank credit transfer in arrears, on the last working day of the month. Payments through the Casual payroll are also made on the last working day of the month.

This page contains information regarding payment for regular employees of the University and associated organisations, and about ad hoc payments to casual staff including those paid through the Tutorial Fund and the Student Employment Office.

Please ensure that any payment for work is paid through the payroll. Staff cannot claim for reimbursement of employment costs made to third parties through their expense claims. If in doubt, please contact the Payroll Office before making any payments.

To ensure prompt payment, particularly on the Casual payroll, please ensure claims are made using the correct forms and that the forms are fully completed (e.g. Person Number/Payroll Number which can be found on a previous payslip).

Important changes to payments for temporary and casual workers:

Please note that the University recently announced that it is partnering with Reed Talent Solutions to provide a managed service which will take responsibility for temporary staff engagements. 

The service was launched back in November 2021, and from 1 August 2022 Reed will manage engagements for all new or re-joining temporary staff.

This service is to be used for all new casual engagements and Managers should now begin using this service. Managers should not continue to use the old casual payroll processes except for current engagements. New engagements and re-engagements must be processed through the new service.

Staff with substantive post-holdings should not register with Reed as they can use the internal casual claims process to receive pay for casual work alongside their normal salary. 

For further information on the managed service please visit the following links:
