Where you’ll be working: Payroll, Waiora CBD
The details: 40 hours per week
About the role:
Waikato District Health Board (DHB) manages the payroll requirements for a large number of complex collective employment agreements, servicing approximately 9,000 employees. We require an experienced Payroll Data Integrity Advisor to work with us as we go through some exciting times with multiple changes on the horizon.
The successful candidate will report to the Payroll Data Integrity Manager, working collaboratively with the wider Payroll Team. A working knowledge of applicable payroll legislation (including Holiday’s Act, Tax, and Employment) is a requirement and experience working within a large scale, fast-paced payroll environment is preferred. As part of the Payroll Data Integrity Team you will be required to proactively engage with all Waikato DHB Staff to quickly identify issues and resolve queries. This role has a strong focus on customer service and problem solving which creates long term opportunities to be involved in the continuous quality improvement of end-to-end payroll processes.
Responsibilities of the role:
- To calculate and seek recovery of payroll overpayments;
- To assist the Payroll Team with investigative duties into process or contractual issues with an aim of responding too high and complex queries;
- Data Auditing, Data Cleansing and other ad-hoc duties designed to ensure the integrity of data within the Payroll System;
- To provide root-cause analysis of issues and recommend appropriate evidence based solutions;
- To provide additional support to the Payroll Team, assisting as and when required with the day to day processing of payrolls and other payroll related functions.
So, who are we looking for?
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in a complex payroll environment, working with a wide range of employment agreements across multiple professions, and with the ability to interpret employment conditions and apply these appropriately to pay related queries. Time and attendance, and payroll systems knowledge will be an advantage, but proven computer literacy and the ability to learn on the run is essential.
You will have the ability to be proactive and show initiative, attention to detail is a must, along with the ability to multi-task across a broad range of priorities. You’ll be able to add value to key payroll improvement projects, but still happy to roll up your sleeves and jump in to support wherever the need may arise in a highly demanding payroll environment.
The ideal candidate will have excellent Communication Skills. You will also have a keen eye for detail and a thirst for knowledge, and the ability to always be on the lookout for ways that we can improve our systems and processes. You will have a strong background in reporting and analysis, be able to monitor trends, analyse and interpret data, and provide innovative solutions with a shared goal of improving the processing and delivery of Payroll Services across the Waikato DHB. Candidates should be open, honest and transparent with the right attitude to drive change in our organisation and align to our organisational values.
We have an inclusive work environment, and actively embrace diversity of people, ideas, talents and experiences. Our vision and values are at the heart of all that we do, with a team truly committed to excellence in all we do. We are empowered to provide People Centred Services (Manaaki), and create Productive Partnerships (Whanaketanga).
