How can you change it up?
At CityFibre our rapid network rollout has meant we needed the people to make those plans become reality. Over the last 2 years, headcount has grown five-fold and will expect that will continue as we scale. Therefore we now need to add an Assistant to our Payroll team to assist the Payroll Manager with the day-to-day running of payroll.
You will be processing and collating payroll data, assisting with end of month payroll reconciliations. One of your main responsibilities will be processing and liaising with accounts payable regarding payment, creating ad-hoc reports when they are requested. You are also expected to prepare and maintain accurate reports of payroll transactions in a timely matter. Some of your other duties will include:
- Analysing pensions monthly
- Managing our healthcare provider portal and membership list
- Collaborating with the human resources department to maintain employee data
- Resolving issues employees have with payslips and other payroll matters and any discrepancies that may arise
- Coordinating payroll approvals and funding instructions
- Replying to government correspondences, and verifying employment for international entities
What will you bring to the role?
We are looking for a motivated candidate who can use their initiative to work and make decisions. Ideally, you will have experience dealing with payroll providers and know payroll compliance/legislation regulations.
In addition to this, you must have strong analytical and numerical skills. It is also ideal that you can work under pressure, prioritising workload so that you can meet deadlines. You should also have excellent written and verbal communication skills, allowing you to communicate the relevant information effectively to all levels of the organisation. In addition to this, you will also need:
- 5 or more GCSEs or equivalent
- Strong Excel experience (Vlook Up and pivot table essential)
- Be able to execute, and proactively follow up
- Demonstrate a high level of accuracy and attention to detail at all times
