Important security advice

As the ESS system includes sensitive information about you it is important that you use it responsibly to ensure that the security of your personal information is maintained.

You should always log out of ESS once you have finished using it and should never let anyone know your ESS username and password.

To log out of ESS always click on 'logout' in the top right-hand corner or close the browser or tab as this will log you out automatically.

Other employees can not see your details through ESS, only their own.
