This is a brand-new role for this fast-growing company, that has an office on the outskirts of Exeter. Reporting in to the HR Manager, they’re looking for someone who’ll essentially become the go to person for all things payroll-related for their sizeable team.

The organisation outsources the payroll, so this role will very much be about making sure the external company they have the correct information to make this happen smoothly.

You’ll need to have recent payroll experience and be someone who can demonstrate a thorough understanding of payroll processes and relevant legislation.

The payroll will very much be your area to own and although that will be your main focus, you’ll also support the HR Manager with other HR-related administration such as recruitment – co-ordinating job offers, the onboarding of new starters etc. You don’t necessarily need to have previous experience of this, although it would be a bonus.

Person-wise they’re looking for someone who’s got bags of enthusiasm, a sparky personality, is happy to be ‘hands-on’ and likes to be a problem solver. As the organisation’s growing, it’s fast-paced and there’s going to be the opportunity for development, so someone who can show that they’re keen to learn, would be a great fit.

What will the HR Administrator role include?

  • Collating all the information (running reports) required by the external payroll company

  • Answering any internal payroll queries and resolving any payroll related issues

  • Working closely with internal teams to prepare payroll e.g. new starters, leavers, sickness etc.

  • Flagging and escalating any potential payroll issues – to the external company or internally

  • Keeping up to date with payroll processes and legislation

  • Producing reports and analysis

  • Supporting the HR Manager with other HR-related administration

The company is ready to interview now, which they’ll do by video call.

If you’ve got previous payroll admin experience and would like to join and support this organisation’s continuing growth, we’d love to hear from you.
