Employee self-service

Now that our new payroll services are live, supported by the People and Money system, where you find your payslip and what it looks like will change from April 2022 onwards.

For guidance on viewing your Payslips on People and Money, please visit the People and Money user guides webpage, where you will find a video overview and detailed guide.

Please download any payslips and P60s you may need from our old Oracle payroll system by the end of July 2022.  

Online Payslips

Staff can view historic payslips in employee self service until the end of July 2022.

Payslips from April 2022 onwards can be found on People and Money.

Accessing employee self-service (EES)

Your username is your staff universal username (UUN) that you use to login to other University services (e.g. jbloggs1)

The Oracle login page is not single sign on. When logging in for the first time, please click on Forgotten Password and enter your UUN in the User Name box and click on the 'Forgot password' button. This will send an email to your staff email account, which will include a link to allow you to change your password.

Please note: Student UUNs (e.g. s123456) and the formats "UUN@ed.ac.uk", Firstname.Lastname@ed.ac.uk and "ed\UUN" are not valid usernames and will produce an error.

If you are a staff member and do not have a staff email account, please email HRHelpline@ed.ac.uk for assistance with gaining your login details.

If you are a staff member and you do have a staff email account but are unsure what your login details are, please use the Forgotten Password feature.

Further information can be viewed on the Accessing Employee Self Service page.
