When do I submit my timesheets and receive my pay? 

Please ensure your hours are uploaded for your manager to approve prior to 9am on Monday morning. If approved on that Monday, you will receive your pay for those hours on Friday of the same week.  


NHS pension scheme

For all PAYE direct engagement assignments via TempRE, all eligible temporary workers are contractually entitled to membership of the NHS Pension Scheme and therefore will be auto-enrolled into the scheme automatically.  

Please be informed, if you do opt-in to the NHS pension scheme this will reduce your pay rate and your contract of employment will indicate the pay rate difference. Please refer to the information we have provided here regarding the NHS pension. If you have any questions regarding the pension scheme, please reach out us before selecting the options in TempRE in order to avoid any issues with payment.
