The Faringdon Academy of Schools is looking to employ an HR & Payroll Assistant to join the Central Academy Team. This is a broad and busy role where attention to detail and the ability to maintain confidentiality are essential characteristics.  

The Faringdon Academy of Schools is an eight school multi-academy trust, which was established on 1st April 2012. Human Resources and Payroll are centralised functions within the Academy and must be responsive to our circa 400 employees. We operate a monthly payroll system, currently outsourced to a payroll provider.

· Manage the input of payroll data in a timely and accurate manner;

· Process payroll related letters and contracts;
