The Role

As part of a busy team, generating 4 payrolls each month with varying degrees of complexity, you will be responsible for performing a broad range of payroll, pensions and benefits tasks as well as involvement in projects.

You will ensure accurate processing and collaboration with colleagues that results in deadlines being met and positive outcomes achieved. You will want to improve systems and processes to drive efficiency and to provide a great service to the rest of the Group.

The Candidate

Customer focussed with a strong desire to develop a professional career in Payroll. Someone who embraces change, is keen to learn, is able to work independently as well as collaboratively and wants to be part of a successful team.
