Pay & Pension
You will be paid on the 25th of the month. If the 25th falls on a weekend or a public holiday, then you will be paid on the Friday immediately before.
We pay you for the current month, so this means you are paid from the 1st of the month until the end of the same month.
Sometimes this can cause new starters difficulties because the following rules apply generally:
When you start, you will be paid from your start date, to the last day of that first month
If you start after the 15th of any month, your first pay will be received the following month plus the following months pay for the full month
We know for those joining after 15th waiting until the following month might be difficult for some people to manage. If this is going to be a problem for you then please don’t worry, we are happy to work with you to find a solution. The best thing to do is to speak to your manager when you start or call Recruitment Services on 01223 217038 ideally ahead of your start date so we can try to help.
