This is an exciting opportunity to lead our Payroll team at a pivotal time, as we move to a new integrated HR and Payroll System (iTrent) for 2024 and beyond.
About the role
Reporting to the Director of Finance, you will be the Payroll lead on our ongoing system
implementation and process improvement projects, ensuring that the Payroll team are trained in the new processes effectively. You will be responsible for overseeing complex payroll calculations and will ensure the efficient administration of a number of our pension schemes, including our Group Personal Pension, The Teacher’s Pension and LGPS. At the heart of this role is the responsibility for overseeing and managing the payroll requirements of the organisation; ensuring accurate and timely payment of monthly salaries.
You will have an eye for detail and will strive for continuous improvement to help us to work smarter and further develop our systems and processes.
With your deep understanding of payroll processes, compliance, and regulations, you will be able to lead us through the implementation of our new payroll system, iTrent. You will collaborate with cross-functional teams, particularly HR and Finance colleagues, to ensure that our payroll processes are efficient, compliant, and aligned with our business needs; to best support our dedicated workforce.
In order to do all of this effectively, the successful candidate will also need to be a confident
communicator with the ability to communicate complex information effectively, and the ability to work under pressure and to adapt to changing priorities.
You don’t need to have worked in the not-for-profit sector before, but you do need demonstrable experience of delivering a payroll function in an organisation of similar scale and/or complexity. Due to the way that Family Action operates, we regularly deal with TUPE transfers, employees on various terms & conditions of employment, and must adapt quickly to changing business needs to ensure that pay is processed accurately. If you have experience working in this way, why not check out the Job Description and Person Specification for a little more information about the role and what we’re looking for?
At Family Action, we transform lives by providing practical, emotional and financial support to those who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation. We have been building stronger families since 1869 and today we work with more than 60,000 families in over 150 community based services, as well as supporting thousands more through national programmes and grants.
We are committed to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in all that we do and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQIA+ candidates and candidates with disabilities, because we are committed to increasing the representation of these groups at Family Action. We offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants and are more than happy to talk with any potential candidates about ways we can make this opportunity as accessible as possible.
We are forward looking, ambitious, and have a commitment to continuous improvement. We are a people focused, can-do organisation, which strives for excellence in all we do and operates with mutual respect. If you share these values and behaviours, then we would love to hear from you.
If you join us, we’ll offer you a generous pension scheme and leave entitlements, eye care
vouchers, a cycle to work scheme and other great benefits. We are happy to talk flexible working. All roles in Family Action are open to a discussion about possible flexible working options, subject to business needs, and all new starters have the right to make a flexible working request from day one of employment. We have an excellent wellbeing offer and we will invest in your professional development with on-going quality training and career development opportunities. You’ll join a great team and have the opportunity to thrive in an innovative organisation that values your opinion, encourages learning and has the needs of children and families at its core.
