What does a payroll executive do?

  • Payroll administration – A payroll executive works with both the internal payroll team and any clients the company has, making sure that all staff, such as payroll clerks carry out their monthly tasks to a satisfactory level.
  • Project communication – Every good payroll executive has the confidence to discuss progress and goals with senior members of an organisation, and to liaise with clients too. This is a key skill, as a payroll executive is often focused on client relationships and customer care.
  • Knowledge of the industry – In their job, payroll executives are often expected to have a strong working knowledge of the industry, including the relevant legislation. This is because as part of their role they may have to discuss current issues with clients or senior staff.
