The Company

A highly successful large Australasian organisation with a key focus on sustainability and innovation. This newly created payroll team will be based at the Head Office, reporting to the New Zealand Payroll Lead and sit within the HR division of the business.

The Opportunity

This opportunity would suit someone who is immediately available and has worked with medium to large payrolls and has managed the full end-to-end payroll cycle. Or worked in a sole-charge role within a smaller business and looking to move into a larger organisation with a supportive team around you. We are looking for someone who has a pro-active rather than reactive approach towards payroll and enjoys being progressive and forward thinking when it comes to systems and automation. This business is investing into new technology and streamlining the way things are done so if this is an area of interest then it’ll be the perfect opportunity for you.

  • Identify areas for process improvement to ensure efficiency and accuracy of performance

Required Experience
