Payroll & HR Officer

£27k- £30k per annum full time

We are looking for a highly organised Payroll and HR Officer to join our close knit and high functioning HR team during an exciting period of growth. Working closely with the HR Business Partners and managers, you will be responsible for ensuring that HR processes, primarily recruitment and payroll changes, happen efficiently and accurately.

The payroll elements of the work will include ensuring that monthly payroll changes are actioned, inputted to the payroll system and pay calculated correctly. You would then liaise with the payroll team to ensure the payments are made accurately and resolving any issues that may arise.

The recruitment aspect of the role involves taking responsibility for the recruitment process, ensuring that vacancies are managed efficiently, and maximise the potential of our Candidate Management System.

Both elements of the role are supported by an HR Administrator and whilst you will not have line management responsibilities for these posts, you will be the technical expert for this work and will be their first port of call for any advice, guidance or problem-solving. In addition, there will be the opportunity to support and add value to HR project work.

This post would be ideally suited to someone who enjoys the variety of HR and payroll related work. Your current role may combine the two aspects already, or alternatively you may be an expert in one field and looking to develop your skills in the other. Passionate about improving processes you will have an eye for detail, be comfortable with spreadsheets, have good basic mathematical calculations (e.g. pro rata), and able to resolve queries and complaints from managers.

It is a busy role, but is also a rewarding one which offers plenty of variety and an opportunity to make a real difference to the HR team and wider organisation whilst developing and enhancing your own skills in a number of areas.

Part time applications will be considered for this role, with the focus being on the payroll elements of the post.
