Are you an experienced payroll / administrator with a good understanding of the wider HR operations and recruitment processes? Then join Shelter as a HR Operations Payroll Assistant and you could soon be providing vital administrative and processing support across Shelter’s HR Operations, Payroll and Recruitment teams.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change — with individuals, in communities, across society – and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, driven individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
About the Role
Day-to-day, you’ll get involved in a variety of tasks that will help ensure the smooth running of all of our HR processes. As well as processing payroll for two pay runs (one for Shelter and one for our Shops), we’ll rely on you to accurately enter confidential information into our HR Information System. Working closely with our outsourced payroll agency is essential in ensuring the data is correct as is investigating to resolve queries. And, when it comes to dealing with telephone, written and face-to-face enquiries, we’ll be counting on your excellent customer service skills and professionalism. Processing starters and leavers, carrying out terms and conditions process changes, ensuring employee files are complete and maintaining office systems all are aspects of this interesting and varied role.
You’ll need experience of working as a payroll assistant or administrator and an understanding of queries relating to SMP, SSP, TAX & NI and ensuring the correct statutory regulations are applied. You’ll also need a proven ability to collate reports with sensitive / confidential information. Proficiency using Microsoft Office applications such as Word and Excel (with good practical knowledge of vlookups and pivot tables), SharePoint, Outlook and the internet is essential too. Commercially aware and great at building a network of good relationships, you're also keen to develop a thorough understanding of the organisation and the wider sector. What’s more, you’re creative and innovative and not afraid to challenge the status quo and introduce new ideas, methods and processes when appropriate.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, a comprehensive contributory pension scheme, employee assistance programme, interest free travel and tenancy deposit loans, cycle to work, retail discounts and access to exclusive Shelter fundraising events.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
