On a day to day basis you will work autonomously and take control of all facets of payroll including fortnightly processing, data entry, employee set up, EOM processing and reporting, compliance and assisting the Finance team with accounts payables and receivables. Attitude and an eagerness to contribute and support the existing team, will see the successful candidate excel in this role.
The Skills Required

Our client uses NAV and iChris as the accounting and payroll packages across the business and exposure to this software would assist in transitioning into the role, however demonstrating that you can quickly grasp new systems and technology will also suffice.
