People invited by the Directorate of People and Organisational Development to claim interview expenses should complete the PR8 Interview Expenses claim form.
Please do not use this form to make or claim any other payments or any kind.
All candidate claims are limited to a maximum of £250, including those for candidates travelling from abroad.
Faculties/Schools/Directorates wishing to pay any amount in excess of this must approve the amount in advance with the candidate and fund the excess from their own budget.
Managers are encouraged to consider ways to curtail the rising costs of recruitment, for example:
- Using Skype/video conferencing for initial interviews
- Ensuring interview times allow candidates to travel without the need for an overnight stay

- Expenses will only be paid up to the limit specified (excluding excess amounts agreed in advance with the School/Directorate)
