Payroll recruitment agency listing

Payroll staff ensure that a company's employees receive their payments on time.

While specific qualifications are not required to work in payroll jobs, it is essential for candidates to feel comfortable working with numbers. Those with previous experience of bookkeeping work are likely to be at an advantage, as are those with experience of computer use. It may be possible for school leavers with GCSEs to enter into payroll jobs through an apprenticeship scheme.

Payroll staff are expected to develop their skills whilst in employment. Experienced staff members may provide new recruits with training on the use of specialist payroll software. Alternatively, staff may have the opportunity to study for formal qualifications that cover the use of payroll software. Relevant qualifications for payroll professionals include, but are not limited to, the Association of Accounting Technicians Certificate in Payroll Administration. With greater experience and responsibility, staff may have the chance to take on more advanced qualifications, such as the Institute of Payroll Professionals Foundation Degree in Payroll Management.

Payroll staff are hired by organisations in all industry sectors, including finance, retail and the NHS. Some payroll professionals work for payroll firms that undertake payroll services on behalf of companies that lack their own payroll departments. In full-time jobs, payroll experts are typically required to work standard office hours, Monday to Friday. Part-time and temporary employment opportunities are readily available and may be publicised through recruitment agencies that specialise in handling accounting jobs.

Starting salaries for payroll staff are around £15,000 a year, rising to up to £25,000 for those with experience. Payroll staff who wish to move up the career ladder may be able to progress into payroll supervisor or manager roles.
