An investment management group is seeking a Senior Payroll Officer to support them on a short-term contract. This role requires an experienced, forward-thinking Payroll Officer who has extensive experience to work in a standalone role with the potential for this to extend to a permanent role.  

Reporting into Finance, you'll be responsible for the delivery of payroll services for staff nationwide, whilst ensuring ongoing adherence to best practice.

Your key duties will include:
  • Processing end to end weekly pay runs (3 per week) which will involve setup of new employees, terminations, allowances, deductions,  updating details, adjustments, role changes, reconciling pay run, loading bank files and reporting.
  • Working with pay runs ranging from 20 to 400 employees.

  • Process month end deductions and reporting on payroll tax and superannuation
  • Answer payroll related enquiries in a timely and professional manner
  • General administration duties related to payroll services
  • Provide quality customer service to internal and external stakeholders

To be successful in this role, you will have significant Australian payroll experience undertaking the end to end process for around 300-600 staff. You will also be available immediately to support the business at a critical time.
