Our pay rates are based on national recognised pay scales, experience, qualifications, flexibility, demand and availability. On registering with The Supply Register, we take these aspects into account and ensure you receive a rate of pay that you are entirely satisfied with and ensures you receive the regularity of work you desire.

We pay all staff every week (every Fridays). Payment is subject to us receiving an approved timesheet for the work completed. You can submit your timesheet and expenses (where applicable) via the candidate portal. The candidate portal is also where you will receive your payslip, P60s and P45.

To enable us to process your payment, all days worked must have a corresponding timesheet authorised by a hiring manager at the school where you are working. Timesheets for days worked must be submitted by Monday 1 pm at the latest (following week the work was completed). This will ensure you receive your payslip by Wednesday and funds into your account by Friday.
