To guarantee payments for December payroll and for processing of essential adverts and contracts before the holidays, we would like to draw to your attention the following deadlines:

 If you need a job advertised over Christmas, please send it across to HR by Monday 12 December 2022 to make sure it meets the deadlines for posting on external job boards.

Acceptances for payments in the December payroll for SRF’s already approved need to be returned by Friday 2 December.

The HR Office will be closed for the Christmas and New Year period from Friday 23 December and will re-open on Tuesday 3 January.
