Interim Part Time Payroll & Benefits Administrator - Exeter / Hybrid - £28-32,000 FTE + Exceptional Benefits 

*Please note that this contract could be offered on a full time basis for a candidate possessing some HR administration experience in addition to the core responsibilities - please state a preference at the point of application* 

Well Placed HR are delighted to have been exclusively engaged by a new client, a well-established and highly regarding professional consultancy with a superb reputation for the quality of their client projects and employee retention. The business has invited us to source an interim Payroll & Benefits Administrator to join them on a 12 month FTC to cover a period of maternity leave. The role is offered on either a full or part time basis, the latter offering a flexible working week, circa 21 hours. The company promotes a hybrid working arrangement following initial onboarding and training, allowing the successful candidate to work remotely for up to 2 days per week. 

This will be a varied and interesting opportunity for an experienced Payroll & Benefits Administrator with a focus on accurate and compliant payroll processing (via a managed payroll service), and administration of the company’s numerous employee benefits initiatives. Key responsibilities of the assignment: 

- Timely and accurate end-to-end processing of employee payrolls

- Act as an initial point of contact for employee payroll/benefits queries 

- Work closely with both people management and finance teams to ensure accurate payroll processing and updating of employee files 

- Administer all aspects of the company’s employee benefits programs, particularly pension plans and health insurance policy 

- Maintain and update a range of employee records (starters & leavers, salary, tax and benefit changes) 

- Assist in the monthly submission of RTI and statutory reporting 

- Liaise with external payroll/benefits stakeholders and suppliers where required 

For this assignment we seek a candidate with recent experience gained in payroll and/or compensation and benefits administration, and with up to date knowledge of regulatory/compliance requirements. A good familiarity of benefits management would be a distinct advantage, as would a good working aptitude for digital payroll systems. The role communicates across all departments of the business and the HR & Payroll Assistant will be a recognised and trusted member of the team, so great communication and delegation skills will be essential. 

The business offers a great opportunity to work with a passionate and friendly team of colleagues and, in addition to a generous base salary, a fantastic range of employee benefits. For further details and a detailed role specification, contact Carly Kellow quoting reference CK9973 ASAP.
