Daily responsibilities of a payroll director

The role of a payroll director is to manage, direct and process a business’s payroll and all related duties. In order to fulfil this task successfully, their daily responsibilities should include:

  • Coordinating and managing the entire payroll system
  • Checking and auditing all payrolls – paying close attention to legislative compliance
  • Managing direct reports within the business’s payroll department
  • Ensuring payroll is properly administered including the processing and month end support where required
  • Supporting internal requirements such as ensuring the proper completion and submission of annual leave reports
  • Maintaining an up to date knowledge of any legislative changes

It is therefore vital that a payroll director can demonstrate an excellent working knowledge of payroll systems, while also having payroll management experience, a strong ability to lead, problem solving and analytical skills amongst others.
