December 2017 update
The Staff Portal app is experiencing an issue on all iPhone and iPad devices. This will require you to download the latest version of the app. Please read the instructions here. Some users may see an 'untrusted enterprise developer' message if installing the app for the first time, or if they have deleted the app from the phone before reinstalling. Please see instructions above to rectify this.

This does not affect Android devices (Samsung, Sony, Google Pixel, HTC, etc.) or users accessing the Staff Portal via an internet browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari.

If you are still experiencing problems with the app, please contact the HR Helpdesk via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or phone (4215 0561).
