We’re recruiting a brand-new Payroll Officer role to complete a Fixed-Term Contract initially working for a higher education facility with multiple sites across the Oxfordshire and Thames Valley region.

  • Assist with the Pension processing when needed
  • Ensure all payrolls are checked and accurate with minimal to zero errors
