‌Registering as a casual Worker

Before you are able to claim for any work done, our Payroll Department will need to have your correct details in order to register you as a casual worker. You are therefore ask to complete a PAY 8A‌ form within a week of starting your demonstrating work and return it to Kalvinder Chana, Room 900, Blackett Laboratory.  Please make sure to complete the whole form and return it to Kalvinder along with your passport. 

We will not be able to arrange payment for your work unless you do this procedure. You will be issued with a letter confirming the details of the work you will be undertaking during the year.  This form must be completed EVERY 12 MONTHS that you do demonstrating work as Postgraduate Student. If you completed a form last year, your new form should be completed within two weeks of the previous form's expiry date. There are Guidance Notes to help you with this.

Recording your work hours

You will need to complete the hours that you work on a monthly basis through the Physics Student Demonstrators SharePoint site whenever you undertake any demonstrating work.  To access the site you must self-enrol first. Please read: Guidance on accessing the Student Demonstrators site . The hours that you work will then need to be confirmed by the Head of the activity and I will then be able to approve it for payment.  If the hours and the confirmation from the approver are received before the 9th of the month, you may be able to get the money into your account by the 24th of the following month.

Please note that you MUST claim for the work done on a regular basis - within a month of completing the work.  You will not be paid unless you do so.  DO NOT stockpile the hours, as Finance may refuse to pay them. Therefore make sure that you have submitted the hours at the time the work takes place.

Please submit your hours in SharePoint.  The information attached here should help you.

£14.14 - demonstrating work

£24.77 - Demonstrating requiring more preparation, i.e. tutorrials or seminars.  The head of the activity will confirm.
