How do I set up an employer?

With NEST Connect you can set up an employer’s NEST account from scratch or you can complete the set-up process for an employer that’s already registered with NEST. Before you can set up an employer you’ll need to have set up a delegate organisation account. To do this, see How do I set up a NEST connect account?

To set up an employer’s NEST account log into your NEST connect account and click ‘Set up a new employer’ on the NEST homepage.

You’ll then be taken through the steps to add an employer to NEST.

The first thing you’ll be asked to do is to accept the terms and conditions. You can’t do this on behalf of an employer but you can progress to the next stage of the set-up process by clicking ‘Accept terms and conditions’ and then selecting ‘Not yet’.

The second step is to add the business information for the employer. You should make sure that the primary contact you add is someone from the employer organisation with responsibility for overseeing NEST. This is the person we’ll email to register with NEST so it’s important that we have the correct email address for them. Once they’ve registered they can log in and accept the terms and conditions for the employer account.

The third step is to add delegates. You’ll automatically be linked to the employer as a delegate organisation as part of the set-up process. If you need to delegate access to someone inside the employer’s organisation other than the primary contact you can do this by adding an individual delegate.

The fourth step is to tell us how payments will be made to NEST. Finally you’ll need to tell us when and what will be paid.
