Before you arrive

Congratulations on your appointment - we look forward to meeting you! 

Before you arrive we ask you to check that you have completed the following steps:


Please ensure you have signed your contract of employment. We send our contracts electronically through AdobeSign which will allow you to simply sign and return it to us.

Personal details

When you receive your contract through AdobeSign we will also include a New Joiner Additional Details form for you to complete. This will provide us with your personal details (including your address and date of birth) and your bank details. These will enable us to get you set up on Trent, our payroll system. Please note that without these, we cannot pay you.

Bank details

We will need your bank details to set you up on our payroll system. If you are new to the UK and do not have a bank account, visit our international staff pages for details on how to get an account set up. If you do not have an account by the time the payroll is run, we will issue your salary as a cheque and it will be sent to your work address at the University.

Pre-employment medical check

All new appointments with the University are made subject to a satisfactory pre-employment health assessment. The pre-employment assessment is carried out by a questionnaire (see your employment contract for the link) and sometimes a health check to ensure the fitness of the person for a given role.

Pre-employment assessment is to ensure as far as reasonably practicable that the applicant is fit for the job without a significantly increased risk to their own or others health and safety. All questionnaires and other relevant information are confidential to the Occupational Health Service.
