Job Description

Based in St Albans, Hertfordshire client is looking for an immediately available Payroll Specialist to join their team on a 6-month interim contract, with the opportunity to work from home 1 day per week after successful training.

This job would suit an experienced payroller to be responsible for running the internal payroll for their UK employees.

The business has been on a positive growth trajectory from before Covid and this multi-site company plans to expand further in the next few years. One of their recent internal investments was a new HR and Payroll system, Element suite.

The successful individual will be a strong payroller, who has probably run a payroll function in the past, with experience of improving systems and processes across the Payroll function and its integration with the business as a whole. This person will be an excellent communicator, via email, telephone and face to face. Good knowledge of Excel is extremely important as the payroll data is exported to Excel to be manipulated as necessary for payroll (Vlookups, Sumifs, Pivot tables). Knowledge of Element suite is preferrable.

Job responsibilities:

  • To prepare and process monthly payroll for 700 UK employees
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to analyse existing payroll processes and identify areas for improvement and transformation

  • Creation of payroll improvement reporting
  • Working with BDO payroll bureau
  • Process all aspects of the payroll, including HMRC starter checklists and P45s
