Batley Multi Academy Trust’s sole purpose is to provide an outstanding education through our family of schools. Batley Multi Academy Trust currently comprises Batley Girls’ High School and Upper Batley High School and we are in the process of expansion with a primary school set to join us imminently.
Batley Girls' High School is an ‘Outstanding’ 11-19 school and we are very proud of our achievements: ‘Students achieve exceptionally well in this outstanding academy. They make rapid and sustained progress’ (Ofsted, 2013). We have an ethos based around the ideas of Achievement, Respect and Transformation (ART). Respect for self, for others and for learning is at the core of everything we do.
Upper Batley High School is a dynamic and innovative learning community. We are proud that our focus is on educating ‘Tomorrow’s Successful Men’ and we are specialists in the education of boys. Our GCSE results are improving rapidly and in 2013 we were in the ‘Top 100 Most Improved’ schools in the UK. In 2014 we were in the ‘Top 50% of Schools in the UK for Value Added’ and in 2015 we were graded as a ‘Good’ school by Ofsted. Ofsted said our learners are making rapid progress and ‘the school is a harmonious community in which to learn’.
Batley Multi Academy Trust is looking to recruit an experienced Payroll Officer. This is an additional role created within Batley Girls’ High School to coincide with our Academy expansion, as we welcome an additional School into the Trust.
Assuming responsibility for the Payroll Service for one of the Trust’s Secondary Schools and the newly joining Primary School, you will have experience of managing computerised payroll systems and calculating payments due. Ideally you will have a detailed knowledge of legislation affecting payment of salaries for both Teaching and Associate staff and a knowledge of both the Teacher’s Pension Scheme and the Local Government Pension Scheme employer responsibilities.
Candidates must have payroll experience. With excellent interpersonal and negotiation skills you’ll be customer focused and be able to establish good working relationships with internal and external customers.
If you meet the criteria above then we would be thrilled to hear from you.
