Are you a payroll professional craving purpose in your work? Fancy a job that combines your Christian faith and in-depth knowledge of PAYE, workplace pensions and SSP?
Since 1906 Stewardship has been serving the UK Church by making giving easy, inspiring greater generosity and strengthening Christian charities and churches. We are Christian, Kingdom minded and serving 1000s of like-minded organisations each year; helping them to focus on their mission by delivering on ours with excellence. Based in the City of London, our fast growing team are actively searching for a new team member with drive, energy and a strong commitment to our Christian vision and ethos.
Our busy payroll bureau, serving over 600 churches and Christian charities (2,650 employees monthly) is growing fast and we’re on the look out for a lively, passionate and driven payroll professional to join our expert, efficient and highly effective team.
Within the bureau you’ll take responsibility for your own portfolio of payroll clients; walking new churches and charities through our on-boarding process, guiding them on payroll matters and changes to legislation, and diving in to the detail on a monthly basis to prepare, check and run their payrolls accurately and on time.
To be successful in this role you’ll be diligent and have excellent numeracy skills, with the ability to manage a steady workload and respond to deadlines, and you’ll preferably already be putting your skills to work in a payroll bureau setting, or other financial role with a clearly defined payroll responsibility.
You’ll be an excellent communicator with the ability to make the complex simple when communicating with clients by phone or email. And you’ll be confident to take the initiative, supported by your team mates, to unpick complex payroll issues and deliver excellent customer services to beleaguered church treasurers, chaotic church leaders and overstretched finance teams!
In exchange, we’ll give you access to training, CIPP membership and pathways to payroll qualifications, the opportunity to significantly broaden your payroll knowledge within a lively, close knit and specialist team of Christian professionals, with some incredibly generous employee perks thrown in too.
