A unique opportunity has arisen for a part-time Payroll and Benefits Assistant, working for a Global Insurance Company.

This 12 month contract is a brand new position (as they've split the role) and will be to join a really lovely HR team.

The HR Manager is a credible, knowledgeable and approachable individual, who requires someone to take responsibility of the monthly payroll and work in partnership with the external payroll bureau. She encourages a work-life balance and a fun, yet professional working environment. I also have to mention the brand new office - as it's one of the best I've seen!

The company employ approximately 200 staff and they have 8 different payrolls.

Typical Payroll duties will include:

· Preparing all information in readiness to submit to our external payroll provider;

· To work closely with the external payroll provider and colleagues in the relevant finance teams;

· Ensure that staff are paid accurately and on time.

· Be the internal 'go to' subject matter expert for payroll queries.

· Maintain payroll processing system and records.

· Ensure that correct payments, reports and returns are made to HMRC and external companies.

· Annual preparation and submission of the P11D data to HMRC.

· Key role in projects to streamline/automate the payroll processes by identifying improvements and implementing changes.

Typical Benefit duties will include:

· To administer the Private Medical and Travel Schemes (for example, starters and leavers).

· To administer the Pensions online portal.

· Ensure other Benefit Schemes (for example, Gym Membership, Childcare Voucher, Cycle) are operated efficiently, that all deductions are reconciled and correct payments made to the scheme provider.

· Produce monthly benefit provider invoices for each Company.

· Provide data relating to the annual benefit renewals to benefit broker as required.


· Assist with the update and maintenance of the HR system records.

· Produce HR MI reports routinely, and on an ad hoc basis.

· Actively look at ways to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of processes.

This part-time opportunity will offer flexible working hours and days to suit the individual.

18 hours per week will be required, and previous payroll experience is essential!
