Payroll Officer Jobs

Payroll officer jobs are highly important for the smooth running of a payroll department, with these individuals having a significant impact on not only their direct colleagues, but the overall happiness of every employee at a business.

A payroll officer will work alongside the rest of the payroll team to ensure that wages are paid on time, bonuses are added correctly when required and that any general payroll enquiries are answered efficiently and informatively.

Responsibilities Of A Payroll Officer

In addition to processing payroll on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis and general payroll maintenance, the ideal payroll officer is also likely to be called upon to perform a number of key tasks:

  • Maintaining leave, sickness and overtime reports.
  • Undertaking required reporting, both internal and statutory reporting.
  • Calculation and payment of termination payments.
  • Processing increases and calculation of back pays.
  • Calculating annual leave and LSL provisions/accruals.

Of course, the specifications for the payroll officer job you are looking to fill is likely to vary slightly, and Portfolio Payroll can ensure that the candidates we provide you with are chosen with a bespoke range of skills in mind.
