What do you need to know?

Here are a list of our most frequently asked questions. If something's missing please feel free to get in touch.
I haven't been called for a job

Our payroll runs Monday to Sunday, payment is always a week behind and will be paid anytime between 12am - 5pm on Friday dependant on your bank.
Where can I find timesheets?
You can find timesheets on our contact us page and under forms. You can send your timesheets to timesheet@topjobrecruitment.com
How can I arrange an appointment to register?
At Top Job we understand that sometimes you cannot make the time to commit to appointments so we offer a walk in service, all you have to do is pop in to our office on between Monday and Thursday 9am – 4pm Monday – Thursday or 9am-1pm Friday with a few documents.

Do I need to dress smart to register?
We appreciate that we are based in the town centre so you may pop in to register in between shopping or going for lunch so you do not have to dress formal to an interview but always remember you never get second chance to make a first impression and please don’t come in if you have recently visited a local pub. We would love you to remember us the next day.
