School Payroll and Compliance Administrator
Full time (52 wks)
One Year Contract (with a view to permanent employment)
Hall School Wimbledon is a small, welcoming, independent co-educational school. The Accounts and Administration office for both the Senior and Junior School is located within the Junior School grounds in Putney, South West London.
We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic individual to start ideally in Mid November who, in conjunction with our payroll bureau, will be responsible for the processing of the monthly payroll for around 90 staff.
You will be a well-organised professional with an excellent eye for detail, and strong knowledge of payroll processes and procedures. You will be fully aware of all payroll legislation including starters, leavers, eligibility to work, all HMRC deductions, auto enrolment and tasks relating to the Teachers’ Pension scheme.
In addition, due to the increasing level of regulatory compliance required by independent schools, you will undertake various duties flowing from a wide range of guidelines and regulations. These could include tasks related to Human Resources, Safeguarding, Health and Safety, Premises Management, Data Protection and general school administration.
You must have experience in operating an accountancy software package (such as Sage), and of analysing data using Excel. Previous experience in a school accounting environment would be an advantage. Experience of processing information using school information management systems is desirable. Education to degree level, or possession of a professional financial or administrative qualification, is preferred.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking for a varied position within an educational setting.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff to share this commitment. Employment at the school is subject to rigorous pre-employment checks.
Applicants should apply directly to the school by submitting a current curriculum vitae accompanied by an introductory letter and details of two referees (present and previous employer – no contact will be made without permission) to Mrs Sheila O’Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org. (There is no need to click ‘Quick Apply' below, through the TES system).
The closing date is 3rd November 2017. Following this, shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete our school application form. If you are not contacted to complete a form, please consider your application unsuccessful on this occasion. Thank you.
