Payroll Team Leader

South Herts

Payroll Team Leader - Up to £40,000p.a. +Benefits

An impressive growth business and market leader, based in South Hertfordshire, are seeking an experienced Payroll Team Leader.

Despite the obvious challenges that we are all facing, this innovative organisation have remained committed to their values of putting their people, customers and the environment at the fore of their decisions. The Company are committed to the welfare of their team and customers, and although the economy is not buoyant for many, they are experiencing continued growth. Due to this, they now require an experienced Payroller with strong team leadership and development qualities.

Is this you?

If you have been involved at a senior level in running a payroll team responsible for over 10,000 staff, then this could be a ‘good’ match.

If you have the proven ability to communicate effectively and engage with internal stakeholders, (including other Departments e.g. HR, Finance etc) as well as external bodies, then this could be ‘great’.

If you have managed, motivated and developed colleagues/a team previously, we are getting into the ‘ideal’ territory!

To be successful in this role you will have up to date regulatory knowledge of HMRC practices and procedures and a ‘hands-on’ approach/mentality, as this is a busy, fast paced Department.

You will be challenged throughout and will truly thrive in this role/business if you can demonstrate a calm approach and strong problem-solving ability.

Although every job description states this, you will need good PC skills including Excel.

A relevant professional qualification would be advantageous but not essential, however a proven ability to do the job, combined with the personality and attitude to rise to the challenges this highly responsible role is likely to bring, IS essential.

In turn, the business will support and develop you and offer an environment that will continue to put our people first.

If this describes you, please apply ASAP as the recruitment process is under way and initial screening calls and video interviews are being planned.

Superb benefits, progression and job satisfaction are on offer.
