Employee Self Service (ESS)

Moray Council employees now have direct control of personal information we hold for you on the HR/payroll system, through a fully secure and user-friendly website. You'll also be able to view your payslips online, if you don't already.  

Register your email address on ESS and get 24/7 access to:

  • view, download and print current and historical payslips (from April 2017 onwards)
  • view and change personal contact details such as address, bank details and emergency contacts
  • view job details, hours and reporting manager

Select the button below to access ESS 24/7 (through Internet Explorer). Explore your new account and check your details are correct. Or, choose the other button to access historical payslips (before April 2017).

Getting started:

Your username will in most cases be in the following format: first name.surname (if this does not work there may be another employee with the same name as you so please contact the email below).

Your password (at first login) will be your National Insurance Number. Please make sure the first letter is in capitals, all subsequent letters are in lower case.
