When do I get paid?

You will be paid on the last working day of the month, except December due to the University’s Christmas closure period.

Understanding my payslip

Your payslip will show you:

  • The description of the type work you have undertaken (ie Admin/Clerical);
  • The rate you are paid at (your hourly rate of pay and your hourly rate of holiday pay);
  • The hours you have worked for this period, and;
  • The total amount (rate x hours).

Further help to to understand the information on your payslip can be found on our interactive payslip.

I don’t think I have been paid

If you were expecting to be paid, firstly please check that your timesheets have been authorised by the department by the deadline (instructions of how to do this are provided below). The deadline for a department to authorise timesheets is midnight on the 15th of each month (except December) for the funds to be paid to you on the last working day of the same month.

If your timesheets have been authorised, please contact the relevant myJobshop Team, who will be able to help you:

For students -

For non-students (including existing staff) -

Instructions to view authorised timesheets

  • Log into your myJobshop portal.
  • In the timesheet section, click the Authorised link, which will take you to all your authorised timesheets.
  • Find the timesheet for the appropriate week (you can re-sort the list).
  • Click into the timesheet.
  • At the bottom of the timesheet you will see the date it was authorised by the department, if it has been authorised before or on the 15th of the month you will be paid that month. If it was authorised after the 15th, it will be paid at the end of the following month. If the timesheet does not appear in the authorised section it has not been authorised. You can check the Submitted section of the timesheet portal to see which timesheets you have submitted but have not yet been authorised.

When will I receive my P60?

The University will automatically send you a P60 by the end of May for the previous tax year if you have worked. It will be posted to the address you provided when you registered on myJobshop.

If you have not received your P60, please contact

In the UK and Ireland, a P60 (End of Year Certificate) is a statement issued to taxpayers at the end of a tax year. It is important a taxpayer does not destroy the P60 forms issued to them, as they form a vital part of the proof that tax has been paid.
