Eight essential items to take with you to your new job









Starting a new job can be both
exciting and daunting. Your first day enables you to get a better understanding
of what’s to come within your new role.




To take the pressure off, we have
produced a list of all the things you should take on your first day at your new
job. 




1.      
Bank
details




Your new company
will require this information so they know where to send your wages. It is
important that you consider which bank account is best for this, so you can
keep track of your earnings.








2.      
P45




On your first
day, you will be asked for your P45. A P45 is a record of how much tax you have
paid on your salary so far. You receive a P45 from your previous role at the
end of employment. Your new company will need this information to send off to
HMRC so they can calculate how much to tax you each month. If you don’t have a
P45, don’t panic. You can fill in a P46 which will be used to calculate how
much you will be taxed based on your earnings.








3.      
National
Insurance Card




Your new
employer will need your national insurance number to ensure you are eligible to
work in the UK. It is also used to calculate your tax and national insurance
contributions.








4.      
Identification




The majority of
companies will ask you for proof of ID when you start a new position. This is
to prove you are who you say you are. A driving licence or passport is
acceptable but you need to ensure they are in date.








5.      
Proof
of address




This isn’t a
requirement from all companies. It depends on the size of the organisation that
you work for. You may be asked for proof of address to prove you live where you
say you live. Bring a bank statement, utility bill or any letter which has your
name and address clearly displayed on it.








6.      
Notepad




This may not
seem essential. However, you will be expected to remember a vast amount of
information throughout your first week. If you bring your own notepad you look
ready for the tasks ahead and you can take note of everything you might be
likely to forget.








7.      
Strategy
ideas




Regardless of
what role you are about to step into, it is always good to have a strategy whether
that is bullet points of what you want to achieve, ideas for your new job or
even a to-do list.








8.      
Enthusiasm




Go into your new
role with excitement and enthusiasm. Expect the unexpected and try and enjoy
every minute of it. Being enthusiastic about your new career will help you work
better and show your employers that you are eager and ready to do your job.
