Updated process for payments to casual workers

The University has engaged Reed Talent Solutions to provide a master-vendor solution in which they will have sole responsibility of temporary engagements.

Closure of the internal casual payment process - 28th Februrary 2023

The University casual payroll no longer operates through the University Payroll Team.

Reed Talent Solutions operate a managed service which provides Managers with an improved casual engagement process. This arrangement includes engagements which previously would have been paid via the University’s casual payroll or via an Agency

The casual payroll will no longer accept claim forms, and all claims will transfer to Reed. Managers should follow the Reed payments process to avoid any potential delay to payment for their casual workers.

From 1st March 2023, all claim forms submitted to the casual payments team, which do not relate to a substantive post holder, will be rejected and Managers will be directed to the managed service.

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