Candidates attending for selection for Lectureship and Senior Administrative posts may have their costs reimbursed by Trinity College, i.e. air fares, prepaid hotel and meals.
In the case of research staff, reimbursement is at the sole discretion and approval of the Principal Investigator and application should be made to them.
All receipts must be retained and sent back to the HR Department along with an Expenses Form (Excel 49 kB) to: Recruitment, Human Resources, House 4, Trinity College, Dublin 2. HR authorises payments and sends the authorised expenses form to the Treasurer’s Office for processing. Payments can be made either by Bank Transfer or by Cheque. If payment is requested by Bank Transfer it can take from up to 2 to 4 Weeks. If payment is requested by cheque, a euro cheque should take no more than 2-3 weeks; A US Dollar or Sterling cheque can take 3-4 weeks to issue.
Please note that there are two forms, one for staff-members and one for non staff-members. Staff members will be paid through bank transfer unless they request otherwise.
