  • holidays
  • sick leave
  • maternity / paternity leave
  • additional workload
  • unexpected vacancies

The team is flexible; whether it's half a day a week or five days a week we aim to accommodate department requirements. We also provide advice on accounting procedures and finance best practices within the University.

The Team

Our team is employed by the University and we currently have two full-time and four part-time Assistant Staff at CS05 level, all providing high standards of work. They are all fully trained in both UFS and in dealing with everyday department transactions and reporting. They have had a variety of experience working across a range of departments.

Cost and Billing Arrangements

We are a self-funding, non-profit making service and the cost is £30 per hour (since November 2021) increasing to £33 per hour w.e.f. 1 November 2023.

At the end of each month we raise internal invoices for the chargable hours according to approved timesheets.
