Payroll Manager - London (Paddington) - Full time - £30-35k + benefits

A payroll job like no other!

"Join us as we disrupt the payment services industry with a technology solution that makes running payroll, fast, cost effective and transparent. Come and be a part of our high growth business as we seek to reach a target of ONE MILLION payments a month!"


Engage is a software business that has created a suite of products to make the life those employing temporary staff, providing temporary staff or managing the payment of temporary staff simple.

We've taken a disjointed and multifaceted supply chain and unified each stakeholder in the chain through our technology, giving clarity of information to all. Our user friendly interfaces make process management a breeze, whilst our compliance and reconciliation efficiencies cut swathes of time from previously burdensome tasks.

The story so far:

Our Founders have spent their lives in the temporary labour market and saw a set of problems that were ripe for a fresh approach. Engage was born and we set out to build a lean, cloud based application that would connect up all users and facilitate the entire recruitment process, from vacancy to billing.

We've made it client agnostic. So, any size business, any one in the supply chain and the worker themselves accesses the same software solution. It speeds up payments, removes duplicate actions and albut eliminates mistakes. It's pretty cool, even if we do say so ourselves :)

The opportunity:

As one of our Team Managers you'll be responsible for the day to day management and motivations of a team of 3-4 Payroll Administrators and the associated client relationships that the team nurture.

Day to day we're pretty busy running, reconciling, checking and signing off payrolls for clients of varying sizes. But no matter what their size, payments on time to their staff are vital for continuity of worker engagement, just as much as it is for their wider business reputations. Your ability to ensure the information flow is optimised will be a vital component of the ongoing growth and success of your team and the wider business.

About you:

We don't like to put people into a box, however we think you're likely to have the following skills:

  • A minimum of two years’ experience in a payroll position
  • Understanding of the intricacies of payroll services and the associated knowledge needed to answer queries around; P45, P46, Tax, Gross to Net calculations, tax and NICS, pensions, salary sacrifice and enrollment schemes, SSP, SMP etc
  • Solid understanding of the end to end PAYE payroll process and supplier ecosystem
  • A great deal of drive and energy and the ability to work accurately under pressure.
  • Solid PC skills including a high standard in Excel
  • Excellent customer service and organisational skills
  • A driven determination to do a great job, not just get the job done
  • Nice to have:
  • An understanding or experience of SaaS based provision.
  • Previous experience of managing a team of Payroll Administrators/Operational staff
  • Experience in meeting multiple deadlines for multiple stakeholders


Engage is growing and we reward internally with promotional progression opportunities and a chance to shape the products and services that we're delivering. Of course there's also the satisfaction of knowing that your team are the best they can be.
