All aspects of payroll are carried out by our own in-house team. We use the latest software to calculate your pay and transfer funds directly to your bank account.



Timesheets must be in by 12noon at the very latest on Mondays. Once your timesheet is with us, within these timescales, we commit to have the funds in your bank account by close of bank trading on the Friday of the same week.

Holiday Pay for Temporary Workers

As you will be aware, the Working Time Directive is government legislation, designed to encourage individuals to take time off from work and be paid for it.

As a reminder of the rules applied to the holiday pay scheme please find below the key points that you need to be aware of.

  • You will begin to accrue holiday entitlement from your first day of work.
  • Your annual entitlement is 5.6 weeks (28 days) pro rata paid leave in each holiday year.
  • You get paid your normal pay for your holiday.
  • To qualify for the right to annual leave you need to be classed as a ‘worker’. If you are self-employed, you have no statutory right to paid annual leave.
  • If you work less than 12 months in a holiday year, the entitlement will, of course, be pro rata. You will accrue holiday on a pro rata basis according to the portion of the holiday year you have worked.
  • Bank and public holidays are included in your minimum entitlement. However, you do not have a statutory right to paid leave on bank and public holidays. Bank Holidays will only be paid as part of your entitlement, if booked following the normal procedure.
  • Holidays may only be taken with the prior agreement of ESB and our Client.
  • You may be required to defer your holiday to a later date because of the requirements of the client. Where this is the case, you will be notified as soon as possible. You will always be allowed to take your full holiday entitlement by the end of the holiday year.
  • The amount of holiday you may take at any one time can be up to the amount that you have accrued.
  • For the purposes of calculating entitlement to leave, the leave year commences on the date that you start an Assignment or a series of Assignments.
  • If you leave you will automatically receive any outstanding holiday entitlement paid with your final wages.

Taking holidays is easy ~ simply call the office or drop us an email and we’ll take care of the rest.
