Trent HR and management information

Trent HR is the University’s HR and Payroll system. Trent HR features a Self Service tool which allows staff on open-ended and fixed term contracts to:

  • view and update some of your personal details
  • view and print your payslips
  • book annual leave
  • book a place on a University training event.

The Self Service system also allows you to view your payslips online. Trent Self Service is not available to individuals engaged on a claims basis, including those engaged through the Temporary Staff Bank (TSB) and Graduate Teaching Assistants.

Management information from Trent HR can be provided through reports which are run within Trent HR or from Business Objects. You can also access key People reports from the Management Information hub.

  • Certain Business Objects reports can be scheduled to run automatically each month and emailed to designated managers.
  • Reports are generally provided in Excel format.
  • Some complex reports include additional merged columns which make it difficult to sort the report in Excel - see Instructions on how to unmerge and delete these additional columns to allow sorting
  • Contact the Human Resources team for your College/Service to obtain any reports
  • All reports are subject to the conditions of use for data from Trent HR system. Human Resources are not authorised to provide a report where this would breach data protection standards.

If the information you require is not listed, you should discuss your information requirements with the Human Resources team for your College/Service (or, for University-wide reports, the Trent HR support team in Human Resources). Please give us as much notice as possible, as creating new and bespoke reports can take a significant amount of time.

In addition, you are able to run reports from within Trent HR for selected units (ie College or Service or sections/academic units).

These reports include:

  • various equality and diversity analysis by organisation unit
  • length of service by organisation unit
  • various absence reports
  • headcount reports (includes all categories, ie claims, GTFs etc as well as employees)
  • various learning activity reports by organisation unit

Facts and figures about the University

To log-in: Use your University username and password. As the system contains some very sensitive personal information about you it is important to ensure that the security of your details is maintained at all times.

To logout: Internet Explorer users can click the 'Logout' link in the top right hand corner of the Self Service pages, while Firefox and other browser users can securely logout by simply closing the browser or tab.

Keeping your information correct and secure

As the Self Service system allows you to view and amend some of the details held by the University’s actual HR & Payroll system you must take care to ensure that any changes you make to your details are complete and accurate.

It is also important that you never let anyone else know your University username and password as this information would allow people to access information such as contact details and pay details, hence exposing you to the risk of identity fraud.

If at any point you feel that your information security may have been compromised you should contact the University's IT department, Exeter IT, in the first instance.
