Candidate Expenses

Interview Expenses

Candidates attending for selection for Academic and Senior Administrative posts may have their costs reimbursed by Trinity College, i.e. air fares (Economy Class), prepaid hotel and meals.

Expenses incurred by candidates attending to general Administrative selection processes are not eligible for reimbursement.

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 original receipts must be retained and sent back to the Human Resources Department along with a completed Expenses Form (xls 60 kb) to:

Resourcing,
Human Resources,

Please note that unsuccessful candidates must complete non-staff payment requisition form. Payments for successful candidates will generally be processed via iExpenses at commencement of contract and will be paid through bank transfer. Please see your induction pack for further details.

The Human Resources Department authorises payment and forwards the forms (non-staff claims only) onto the Financial Service Division for EFT payment. All EFT payments should take no more than 2-3 weeks;
