What an opportunity!

Chemist Warehouse is Australia's leading retail pharmacy group and one of Australia's most recognised brands. In addition to the 17,000+ employees working in over 500 stores across Australia, we also have a growing international presence in New Zealand, China, and Ireland.

Over the last 24 months, we have had the good fortune of seeing our business adapt to the obvious challenges and consolidate our status as the market leader. As we embark on the next stage of our ambitious growth plan, we are currently recruiting for a Payroll Officer to join our busy Payroll Team based at our head office in Preston.

About the Role

Our Payroll Team is responsible for preparing and processing the fortnightly pays (and any required adjustments) for our 17,000+ employees working across our stores, distribution centres, and head office sites.

As Payroll Officer, your primary areas of responsibility will be to (a) prepare and process accurate fortnightly pays in accordance with awards, agreements, company policies and legislation; and (b) execute selected adjustment pay-runs, including the calculations of all pay related amendments and allowances.

A core aspect of the role will be to process and balance the fortnightly and adjustment pays and finalise in appropriate timeframes.

Some of the other responsibilities as a Payroll Officer will require you to:
  • Maintain system data to ensure employee personnel files remain up to date
  • Assist with Work Cover administration including preparation of forms and returns and reconciliation of claims and recoveries
  • Respond to payroll queries and offer advice to key stakeholders on solutions to improving payroll performance
  • Process payments via On-line banking
  • Provide a high level of customer service and support to our employees with any payroll queries
  • Conduct, annual, personal and LSL leave audits as per the appropriate instrument and or state legislation
  • Ability to process back pays including Lump Sum E payments and superannuation
  • Process, new starters, terminations and variation with required timeframes

About you

To be successful in this role, you will be an experienced payroll officer, ideally with a background working in high-volume payroll functions. You will be able to demonstrate an in depth understanding of payroll legislation and processes, including the interpretation of relevant instruments and legislation.

In addition to your advanced IT skills (especially with MS Excel and Word), you will also have a strong working knowledge of PayGlobal and Kronos. Underpinning all of this will be your working knowledge of employment law, taxation, superannuation, Modern Awards, and the National Employment Standards

We are also looking for candidates that can demonstrate they can:
  • Build strong working relationships with payroll team members, key stakeholders and HR
  • Work to tight deadlines.
  • Take the initiative to analyse a situation and make appropriate decisions in order to achieve results; and
  • Adapt to a changing environment.
