The largest provider of unattended self-serve coffee and convenience food in Europe is recruiting for a Senior Payroll Administrator at their Ruislip office in West London. This is a fantastic opportunity for a driven and highly analytical individual with significant experience of payroll processes and systems to join a high-profile international business and take responsibility for the entire payroll process for a workforce of 1600+ employees (and growing).
This is a standalone role that sits within HR rather than Finance with the role 75% input/processes and 25% reporting and analysis.

o Assist with the management of employee benefits
The role will suit a technically proficient individual with payroll experience gained within a multi-site business.

o An understanding of core processes and legislation related to auto enrolment, P11Ds, NI calculations etc
o Advanced MS Office skills, especially Excel – Pivot Tables, VLookup etc
