UCL Human Resources


The first day in post and beyond

These resources are aimed at helping you get to work once you have started.

Checking that we have your correct contact and bank information

It is important that once you have signed and returned your contract of employment that you log into MyHR Self Services to update your bank account details to ensure that your first salary payment is paid into your nominated bank account. (NB: You will only be able to access MyHR once you've received your contract of employment, and on or after your commencement date).
