How do I sign up to work?

You sign up to work by filling in a form. This will be sent to you via email and will have a deadline for completion. The form will ask you to indicate your availability from a list of interview dates.

We will email you to confirm which shifts you are booked to work for. It is your responsibility to keep a record of your shifts so please remember to write them down in your calendar or diary.

I have not received a reminder about my shift; who do I contact?

The admissions team should send you a reminder about your shift just before you work. If you still haven't heard anything the day before your shift, email student.guides@uea.ac.uk and we'll get back to you.

How do I cancel a shift?

If you need to cancel, please fill in the cancellation form.

If you are cancelling on the morning of your shift, you must phone admissions with the number they provide you with and email student.guides@uea.ac.uk

All terms and conditions regarding cancellations and remaining on the Student Guide Scheme can be found in our Guidance Note and Agreement, which all Student Guides are expected to adhere to.

When will I get paid for the work I've done?

Your timesheets will be submitted to the payroll department who then pay you for the hours you have worked. You will receive payment in line with the UEA payroll calendar, meaning that if you work past the "payroll cut off point" you will receive payment on the following month's pay day.

You can view your pay slip online by logging in with your UEA username and password.
