In your role as Assistant Payroll Manager, you will play a key part in delivering accurate pay and returns on time, in compliance with internal controls and legislative requirements. Your responsibility will involve ensuring that strong processes are followed in the delivery of payroll-related payments, with thorough checks and balances in place to reduce the risk of errors and fraud, and to maintain control measures.
To excel in this role, you will need to be a confident and innovative individual who can work well under pressure and within tight deadlines. We are particularly interested in someone who is calm, attentive, and thorough, and possesses excellent communication skills. Working alongside our team of payroll specialists, you will oversee the day-to-day operations of our in-house payroll function. This encompasses ensuring timely and accurate payments to approximately 3900 colleagues, in compliance with both UK and Republic of Ireland legislation, on a weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly basis. You will also be responsible for meeting the SLAs (Service Level Agreements) and statutory deadlines for all third-party returns, payments, and remittances.
You are not someone who solely focuses on the system and process, neglecting the needs of stakeholders. Instead, you prioritise the wider requirements and support needed by the team. This role is not suitable for individuals who prefer to work in isolation at a slower pace. As part of this role, you will engage with stakeholders at all levels, prioritise their demands, and ensure timely delivery while also providing support to others. Your continual aim will be to enhance processes, simplify tasks, and automate where possible.
Additionally, you will have the opportunity to experience various payroll activities that may not be currently included in your role, such as Enhanced Reporting Requirements, share schemes, Employer Related Securities, TUPE transfers, acquisitions, integrations, report writing, and software development.
