You will deputise for the Payroll Manager when required and deliver the day-to-day line management of 2 Payroll Officers by conducting daily and weekly team meetings, setting team and individual targets and conducting regular one-to-ones and appraisals.

In this largely autonomous role, you will manage key stakeholder relationships to identify opportunities for improvement and increased compliance and ensure up to date legislation is incorporated into payroll processes and knowledge shared with the Payroll Officers.

You will hold a Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) qualification or a significant background either as a Senior Payroll Administrator/Payroll Team Leader or Payroll Supervisor within a high-volume payroll environment.

You will have great interpersonal and communication skills (verbally and written) with a strong focus on customer service delivery and professionalism, with the ability to motivate and lead a team remotely and in person.

You will be computer literate having a good working knowledge of Microsoft products (knowledge of 'MidlandHR iTrent' would be beneficial) and the confidence to grasp new IT technology quickly.

You will be analytical, meticulous and an effective problem-solver, able to use your initiative to find positive solutions whilst maintaining a high level of accuracy, prioritizing tasks and effectively managing your time to meet agreed deadlines.

If you feel you have these skills, experience, or knowledge, we'd love to hear from you.
