What is an Absence Administrator?

Absences Administrators have been identified across the University as being responsible for maintaining the sickness absence record for all employees in their School/Service. If you are an Absence Administrator it is likely that you are familiar with the Sickness Absence Reporting form that was completed each week and returned to Payroll with names of each member of staff who were absent from your area. This is now a thing of the past and you are able to enter this information directly into the HR system (iTrent) for each member of staff.

There are several benefits to this which include:

  • No more paper forms - no chance of any forms getting lost
  • No need to chase employees when they return to work
  • All iTrent users will have real time information the moment an absence is entered - no need to wait for the internal mail
  • Removes the chance of duplicating work

The link to log in to iTrent is Your username and password is the same as the AD information you use to access your emails or your PC at work. This system is only available on campus.

Please visit the Absence Administrator guidance page which includes a user guide and how-to-videos to help you use and understand what you are able to do with iTrent.
