Employment Contract

The head of School/Discipline (or nominee) employing teaching support staff must return a contract to HR prior to the start date of the individual’s employment in the University. Please see HR website for Teaching Support Staff (TSS) process.

HR will advise by email (tss@nuigalway.ie) if the teaching support staff employment will be non pensionable and therefore payment will be processed when the hourly paid teaching staff timesheet is submitted on a monthly basis. Please see payment and timesheet process information by clicking here.

First Time Set up to obtain Payroll ID number

Please follow the steps required for your first set up to obtain a payroll ID number. If you were paid before please scroll down to review the steps involved for rehiring a previous employee on payroll.

A different ID number is used for Scholarship payments which can't be used for this process. Therefore, a new Payroll ID number will need to be set up for students who will be paid for the first time working at NUI Galway.
