Welcome to the Staff Portal!

Here you will find access to all of the resources you need to do your job. If something is missing make sure you request to have it added asap.


Dear Staff Team,

As promised here is my parting gift to you all. Please find your access to our Staff Portal here: https://staff.finemusicsydney.com/

You should have received an email yesterday from Wishlist Member which gives you access to the Staff Portal. If you haven’t received this or if you have lost this Tessa or Mona can always re-set it for you.

Hot Tips

* Your username is always your work email address
* You can always find the login link to the Staff Portal in the bottom footer of our main website just like the Volunteer Portal

Here you will find access to all of the resources you need to do your job. Can’t remember the name of the website where you log your leave applications or download your payslips? Never fear its all here!

If something is missing, make sure you request Mona or Tessa who is both administrators to have it added asap. My parting advice to you is to always add resources as you go. Sign up to a new work-based app? Add it! Source a new supplier or contract? Add them! Designed a new administration template? Upload them to the media centre and add the link!

Parting Advice

The Business Plan, Marketing Matrix and Budget will help you to stay on track. Just stay calm, carry on and stick to the plan! If ever in doubt always first refer to the Business Plan, Marketing Matrix and Budget. If you are requested by a volunteer to start a new project that hasn’t already got board approval my parting advice is to contact the board at board2020@finemsuicsydney.com and request them to confirm minutes that document approval for the project and budget etc to complete the project.  


This menu includes all operational documents. Find the Business Plan, Strategic Plan, Marketing Matrix and Budget here. Remind the incoming General Manager that these all need to be updated before June 30th and approved by the board in preparation for the next FY. Also, remember that the auditors will ask for these!


This menu includes all of the Human Resources related resources. You will find an overview and all of your confirmed position descriptions here. You can access Fairwork Statements and your related Industry Awards here. Remember to log your hours using Clockify every, month. Your logs will be used in the mandatory annual audit to help determine you are being paid correctly. Don’t forget to log all of your leave and TOIL applications in your Paysonline account. You can also download all of your payslips here.


This menu includes all of the administration related apps and software that we use. If anything is missing please add it asap. I think that all of the audio apps need to be added here.


This menu includes direct links to all of the legislation that the staff team needs and indeed our organisation needs to abide by. I urge you to read these and to refer to them whenever in doubt.
