Payroll information


You will receive weekly online timesheets whilst on your TSS assignment. Please ensure you submit your hours at the end of each week to avoid unnecessary delay in your timesheets being authorised for payroll. 

Please remember:

  • Do not enter hours for days you are not working
  • Submit a zero hours timesheet for the whole week if you are not working by selecting the ‘did not work this week’ box
  • Breaks are unpaid - the timesheet will automatically deduct break times from hours worked

Please read our timesheet user guide for further information on how to complete your timesheets.





The TSS payroll is processed monthly and runs from the middle of each month. For example, if you start working mid-January, you will be paid at the end of February for all hours worked up to mid-February. This may mean waiting a little longer for your first payment depending on which part of the month you start in.

All payments are made via BACS transfer on the penultimate working day of each month and a payslip will be posted to your home address. Here is a list of upcoming pay dates. Please ensure you have provided us with a new starter and HMRC form (or P45) before you start working. 

You can view your payslips and P60s online via the HR Self-Service webpage. This will also allow you to view and apply for internal-only University vacancies via the Internal Job Board, which you are eligible to apply for whilst you are working in a TSS assignment.

Leaving TSS or transferring to another University department? 

If you are leaving TSS please let us know so we can arrange for your P45 to be issued and any remaining holiday accrual to be paid to you. If you are transferring to another University department a P45 will not be issued and we will process any remaining holiday accrual for you. Whether you are leaving or transferring you will need to return your University card to TSS as soon as your assignment has finished.
