Your Role

As the Payroll Manager, you are responsible for leading the delivery of payroll services to over 500 employees across Australia and New Zealand. This is a leadership and hands-on role processing the monthly and weekly payrolls with the support of our Payroll Specialist. 

You will take ownership and responsibility for ensuring accurate and timely payments that adhere to legislation and provide specialist advice and recommendations as the payroll subject matter expert (SME). 

You will always be thinking about continuous improvement not only from an employee experience perspective but also developing and refining the payroll process to consider risk, penalties, efficiency and governance. 

As a key conduit between HR and Finance, you will play an integral role in supporting month end reconciliations across the teams. You will have the ability to build and grow strong partnerships with internal stakeholders (Finance, HR etc.) and 3rd party vendors (including Kronos, Preceda, business process outsourced providers, etc.).

As a system owner, you will be accountable for data integrity at all times and will ensure appropriate governance and audit of payrolls. 


A Typical Day

Your day will include leading and transacting the Australian payroll processes across our employee lifecycle including the preparation of complex calculations and overseeing the New Zealand payroll that is currently managed by our payroll provider, Preceda. 

You will be responsible for ensuring adherence to legislation, awards, EBA’s and contractual agreements within our service targets for a timely payroll across both countries. 

You will provide sound advice and recommendations regarding relevant legislation, allowances, deductions, superannuation, payroll tax and more. 

You will lodge, report and remit to all relevant bodies as required and maintain Employee Self Service user access and security ensuring available functionality is being utilised to its fullest. 

As the Payroll Manager, you will lead, coach, collaborate and share your experience with the Payroll Specialist as you play a key role in continuing to grow the payroll capability.

As we are focused on continuous improvement at Electrolux, our business requirements and roles are likely to evolve over time.
