At Meridian we have adopted a procedure where you as the candidate will not be required to complete weekly timesheets. The work you carry out is agreed by the school and your consultant. 

You will receive a weekly payslip which is available as a paper document or you can choose to view it online. 

If you choose to view it online your consultant will provide you with the relevant details once you completed your first days work and your payroll number has been issued. 


Meridian Education works in partnership with an external payroll provider, ESENTUAL. This offers you a way of off-setting legitimate expenses against your income. Being paid this way enables you to benefit from your site based status as a temporary worker and results in an increase in your weekly take-home pay.
