Interim Payroll Assistant (12-month FTC)  – Barnstaple / Hybrid - £24,000

Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to have been re-engaged by a major North Devon employer to assist in their search for a Payroll Assistant, on a 12-month fixed term contract. This role is offered as a full-time contract and works with a business that has a major stronghold in the services sector and now operates on an international scale. 

The business offers a generous hybrid working policy, which could see the successful candidate completing the majority of hours on a remote basis. Reporting into an experienced payroll manager, within a vibrant and supportive finance team, the successful candidate will be responsible for processing the in-house UK payrolls.

Key responsibilities to include:

-Be the first point of call for any payroll and pension related queries

-Identify and resolve payroll discrepancies

-Process monthly payrolls via BACS in an accurate and timely manner

-Upload pension data and provide detailed payroll information

-Ad-hoc duties including the preparation and inputting of new starters and leavers details.

This is a role that will call for strong multi-tasking, exceptional internal/external communication skills and an excellent attention to detail. A CIPP Technician, or equivalent, qualification is desirable but by no means essential. A desire to do the job in a timely and meticulous manner is just as important.
