I am excited to be working exclusively with a fantastic service-based business is Sheffield. A leader across multiple industries with over 2 decades of proven experience, this is an incredibly exciting business that has seen continued growth through difficult times, which has resulted in further resource being required within the finance team.

Job Purpose:
This is a new role to work as part of our finance and HR Head Office teams in Sheffield. The role has two key elements:

*To coordinate and oversee our global payroll and to administer the security clearances required for new employees.

Principal Accountabilities:

Payroll is currently outsourced to various providers in each geographical region in which we operate. The successful applicant will be responsible for

*Owning and developing the relationships with these providers, for ensuring that the information required to complete payroll is obtained from the timesheet systems and delivered accurately and on-time to the outsourced providers, and that payments are correctly made.
*Responsible for ensuring that payments and filings to tax authorities are made in line with local regulatory requirements.

While the successful applicant will be supported in performing the payroll function by another member of the team, primary responsibility for the coordination will need to be owned by this role.

Given the sector the business works within, ensuring compliance with industry standards is paramount. With that in mind, the successful applicant will have responsibility for

*Obtaining satisfactory pre-employment checks for new employees relevant to their role within the organisation, and renewing baseline vetting in line with policy.

Key personal attributes:

Personality Attributes Required:

*Demonstrate excellent organisational skills
*A keenness for detail and strong interpersonal skills
*An ability to coordinate effectively with several stakeholders both across the organisation and external to it, and so being able to communicate in a confident and professional manner will be required.
*The successful applicant would also be expected to be confident in reviewing data and spotting anomalies.

Qualifications and experience:

Experience of working within payroll is essential, ideally with some experience of overseas payroll. We are not expecting the applicant to have calculated payroll values, especially overseas, but a knowledge of the key elements to be able to understand when further professional assistance may be required is vital. Prior knowledge of security clearance administration would be a desirable but not required as full training will be provided.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone, as the continued growth of the business will no doubt provide further opportunities to gain experience and develop other skills.
