My client is a vibrant and dynamic marketing business based in a stunning Central London location and has forged an attractive client base of well-known brands. They are now looking for an experienced Payroll Administrator to join the team on an initial 6-month contract. It is possible that after this time, the role could become permanent.
Strong knowledge of Sage50 and MS Office (Excel in particular) is essential.
You will be working alongside the Payroll Manager but you will also need to be able to manage the full payroll lifecycle on your own, as the Payroll Manager will be heavily involved in additional internal projects. As this is a global company, this will include processing an International monthly payroll for around 500 employees.
Experience in all or most of the following will strengthen your application:
- Inputting payroll changes
- Reviewing final payroll
- Administration of pension schemes
- Monthly reporting on pay, taxes, deductions etc.
- Processing P45s, P60s
- Answering payroll queries
This is a key role that requires a strict confidentiality and excellent time management skills.
Any knowledge of PAYE, National Insurance deductions, RTI and liaising with HMRC would be of additional use.
The successful candidate is likely to be someone who is self-motivated, quietly-confident and thrives well in a fast-paced environment.
Although not essential, a good relevant degree or AAT/ACCA qualification would be beneficial.
This is an initial 6 month fixed term contract position offering up to £27,000 pro-rated per annum dependent on the depth of relevant skills and experience.
