Human Resources



E-timesheets enable claims to be submitted by the individual worker via their Employee Self Service login.

Once submitted, each timesheet require two levels of approval, firstly by the Line Manager and secondly by the Departmental Authoriser, before then progressing to Payroll.

The whole process is electronic and is initiated by the individual who has completed the work.

Guidance on e-timesheets, including screenshots is available

If you have not been informed by your manager that your department is set up to use e-timesheets, you should submit timesheets via the Hourly Paid Tool.

If you have positions in more than one department, you will only be able to use e-timesheets for those positions within the departments that have gone live with e-timesheets, the other roles will need to have timesheets submitted via the Hourly Paid Tool.


If you are unable to complete an e-timesheet, in the first instance please contact your manager.

If a manager hasn’t received a timesheet that has been submitted, please check the reporting lines are correct using the hourly paid listing.

If there are technical problems, with your Employee Self Service login, please contact Computing Services.
