Payroll Administrator. Human Resources. Part Time (26 hours per week) Working pattern to be agreed with successful candidate

We are looking to appoint a proactive individual to join our Payroll team which is part of the Human Resources Department. Providing a customer-focused service, you should enjoy working to challenging deadlines, using your initiative and possess the ability to establish and develop excellent working relationships with managers.

You will be responsible for providing a full payroll service, using iTrent payroll software with accuracy and efficiency to meet given deadlines.  The successful candidate will have previous payroll experience and be responsible for maintaining and inputting payroll records with an understanding of the calculation of statutory payments along with variable data such as overtime.

With previous experience of working in a payroll team, you will also have excellent communication skills and the ability to handle queries and provide a high level of customer service.  You will be confident in providing advice and guidance on payroll matters to line managers. You will also support the wider HR team by answering routine queries on HR and payroll policies and procedures. The team you will be joining has a strong customer focus and you should bring a "can-do" attitude.

Excellent time management, a pro-active approach and a high level of attention to detail are all essential elements of this role. You will also have some experience of working in an administrative role and of using Microsoft Office and web based systems along with a Level 2 qualification in maths and English (GCSE Grade C or above, GCSE Grade 4 or above or equivalent). A payroll qualification would be beneficial but is not essential.

The College has a grading scheme allowing for progression to the top of the scale with increases after a probationary period and again after two years’ service.

Previous applicants need not apply.
