How to create a myJobshop account and register as a casual worker
To be able to undertake casual work for the University of Sheffield, you will be required to create an account on myJobshop. This will enable you to accept offers of work and complete timesheets for payment.
When you have created an account, you will be able to complete the full registration process:
*Please note: You will not be permitted to start work for the University until you have presented documentation to evidence your eligibility to work.
Once you have registered on myJobshop, completed the pre-employment checks and accepted your booking offer and written statement of particulars, you will then be fully compliant and ready to work.
To ensure timely payments for casual work, it is recommended that you submit timesheets, via myJobshop, on a weekly basis. Failure to do so may result in late payments and tax and NI implications.
Your claims for work will be processed through the myJobshop system by submitting weekly timesheets.
Your timesheets will be available in the myJobshop portal (located in the Timesheet section under Incomplete/Not Submitted) for each role and for each week that you have worked.
The week runs from Monday to Sunday, therefore, you can submit your timesheet once you have finished working for that week, ensuring the dates and hours are correct. Please Note: Your timesheet will be rejected if the information submitted is incorrect.
Our frequently asked questions may assist with queries you may have in relation to submitting your timesheet.
You will be paid on the last working day of the month, except December (due to the University’s Christmas closure period). To check what date you will be paid each month, please click here.
Your timesheets will need to be completed and authorised by your hiring manager before the 15th of the month for payment in the same month. If your timesheet is completed and authorised after the 15th, it will be paid at the end of the following month.
