Once you’ve created your password, go to the second email that you would have received. The subject for this email is ‘User account created’.
This email is notifying you that your portal account has been set up and you’re now able to access your pay details online. It will also state your username which is your email address.
Because you’ve already set up your password, you can log straight into your portal via the ‘Employee Portal’ link - see link in the email.

To login, enter your username (your email address) and password. You will be taken to your employee portal shown here, where you can enter timesheets, apply for leave, view leave balances, indicate whether you’ve been happy with work this week, indifferent or unhappy.

You will be taken straight to your dashboard where you can enter timesheets, apply for leave, view leave balances, indicate whether you’ve been happy with work this week, indifferent or unhappy.
