Payroll Administrator, Guilford- 6 month FTC - £27000 - £31.000

The company

Impressive organisation who are currently going through a period of growth.

The role

Operating with minimum day-to-day supervision, the post holder will be required to work both independently and as part of the wider team. They will be responsible for a section of payroll, maintaining all routine manual and computer records for a specified group of staff in order to meet statutory requirements and University regulations, producing accurate payment to deadlines. The post holder will carry out much of their activities with limited daily guidance from the Deputy Payroll Manager, and as such they will have some latitude within their daily work routine to organise and prioritise their own work, to ensure that key deadlines and objectives are met. It is critical that the post holder demonstrate initiative and flexibility in the arrangement of their work priorities; this will include successfully managing any conflicting demands, possessing an awareness of the options available and being able to make effective and appropriate decisions.

To ensure the consistency and quality of the payroll service offered, the post holder will normally work within well-established documented administrative processes and procedures. They are expected to exercise sound judgement and demonstrate initiative when dealing with enquiries from members of staff on personal salary issues and when dealing with salary related enquiries from departments and external organisations. Resolution for these issues will usually be found through referring to their previous experience of similar problems or through making reference to departmental policies and procedures and applying them. Problems of a more complex nature will need to be escalated to a senior member of the team
